It is no secret that service delivery in South Africa is very
slow and the province of KwaZulu Natal is no stranger to that.
Therefore it is the duty of the government to speed up this
process so that people and places benefit.
Moreover, South Africa adopted the concept of cooperative
government in the 1996 Constitution. This simply refers to a
coordination and communication between different levels of the
Government, that is from National, Provincial to local level. It
is important to stress that these spheres are in no competition
with one another but they should complement one another. Thus
one level should not act alone or make a decision solely.
Another provoking problem in service delivery is when spheres
undermine one another, especially with reference to Local and
Provincial Government from different parties having a collision
and a conflict of interest.
As the IFP we emphasize that service delivery should speed up in
South Africa so that people benefit and to make their lives
easier. We also acknowledge the existence of UKUSEBENZA
NGOKUBAMBISANA in this province and that the money allocated for
roads, housing, clinic improvement and school renovations is
utilised whilst avoiding corruption, over and under spending of
Lastly, if we are looking forward to an improved South Africa in
future where service delivery is accomplished and everyone is at
an advantage of improving their livelihood, all Governmental
spheres should work together with reference to the wave of
protests which have been occurring across South African
townships over service delivery from the previous years.
I thank you
