Cape Town - The Western Cape ANC has called on President Jacob Zuma to order a service delivery audit in Cape Town following several protests, it was reported on Friday.

African National Congress provincial secretary Songezo Mjongile told the Cape Times that the Democratic Alliance was not meeting its targets for human settlements and that thousands of families were being left out in the cold.

"Inhabitable temporary relocation areas like the much-hated Blikkiesdorp have become permanent features. The ANC calls on Zuma for an audit on service delivery," he said.

He also said the DA-led government could not continue diverting attention from service delivery issues by blaming the provincial ANC for fuelling protests.

Provincial premier and DA leader Helen Zille said such an audit had already been completed for Zuma.

"The Western Cape and Cape Town were by far the best for service delivery in the entire country, which is one of the reasons so many people move to the Western Cape," she told the newspaper.

She said there was a "massive" redistribution of budgets to the poorest.
