Limpopo on the rebound...

07 August 2013, 07:35

The Limpopo Provincial government is on course to reclaim its glory days. This is a consequence of the many intervention measures applied in the province.

The Limpopo journey of revival kicked off in December with key service delivery provincial government departments being placed under Section 100 (1) (b).

At the level of the ANC, provincial executive committee of Limpopo was disbanded and replaced by a Provincial Task Team to take the organisation to its elective conference by the end of this year.

These intervention measures culminated in the resignation of Cassel Mathale as Premier and his replacement by the former ambassador to the Ukraine, Stanley Mathabatha. Upon assuming office, Mathabatha came up with a new executive council to assist him in the revival of the province.

In his acceptance address after being sworn-in as Premier Mathabatha said the government and the people of Limpopo must make it their primary mission to root out corruption where it manifests itself.

"It is for this reason that we call on all our people to join us in our endevour and renewed efforts to defeat crass materialism, consumerism and other ills that threaten the moral fibre of our society. Those found guilty must be made to pay for their misdeeds. We cannot allow people to use state resources for personal enrichment. This is the taxpayer's money. It is meant for nothing else but the improvement of the conditions of living of our people."

"We must reclaim the dignity and glory of Limpopo as the province of peace and prosperity."

In subsequent public pronouncements and media interviews Premier Mathabatha has been consistent in his condemnation of corruption.

Premier Mathabatha's election has been embraced by all stakeholders accross the province. This is a sure sign that is on the rebound.

A while ago there was a spate of articles about white privilege that I really wanted to respond to but business being what it is I simply didn't get the time.
