On Thursday, President Cyril Ramaphosa delivered the keynote address on the first day of the South African Local Government Association’s (SALGA) two-day virtual National Members Assembly.
Following the auditor’s report, Ramaphosa points out the serious challenges municipalities are facing when it comes to governance and finances.
Ramaphosa said it appeared the situation was getting worse.
“We simply cannot afford for local government to fail, because when local government fails, provincial government fails, and ultimately national government fails. It is too important to our people and their lives and our developmental objectives of this country.”
