Ramaphosa spoke at the Msunduzi Athletic Stadium meeting of the ANC's provincial executive committee on Monday. In his speech, Ramaphosa talked about Eskom's problems and the lack of water in some parts of KZN
He advised the provincial leadership that the ANC leadership needed to put in more effort to convince South Africans that the party still represents them and their needs. Siboniso Duma, provincial chairperson, offered an apology to the president for the conduct of some members at the most recent conference, at which Dr. Zweli Mkhize did not appear before inviting Ramaphosa to the podium.
My heart has always broken when I have heard people in several municipalities claim that there is no water. That has been reported in numerous province regions; Consequently, those issues must be resolved. I hope that we will also talk about those issues when we talk about them later, chairperson, because they will change the game for us as we get closer to the elections.
"The success of all these efforts to grow the economy, create jobs, and fulfill our responsibility to meet our people's needs is the effective function of local government. Cogta stated in the 2021 state of local government barometer that eleven of the 54 municipalities in KZN were dysfunctional. Now that this is the case, we need to deal with it.
“I said this a lot yesterday (Sunday) in the Free State because, in that province, the ANC runs every municipality, and none of them are working properly. Now is the time to sit down, take a look in the mirror, and think about our options given that we only have 15 months to make things right.
KZN leaders are not to be blamed for Eskom's load shedding! Ramaphosa is failing to take responsibility of the country as president and stop load shedding. Please share your thoughts below and follow me for more exclusive news reporting
