Johannesburg - The ANC's provincial task team (PTT) in Limpopo has been applauded for restoring good governance in the embattled province, the party said on Saturday.

"Since the... provincial task team took over the political management of the province, the team has been inundated with calls from branch members and supporters of the ANC across the province, wishing the team success in its endeavours," the PTT's provincial secretary Joy Matshoge said in a statement.

Recently, the PTT imposed a moratorium on filling mayoral and council vacancies in the province's government.

The task team had also requested mayors and municipalities to submit reports dating from 2011, after local government elections, to demonstrate how they had met their goals. .

The PTT's establishment was announced on 25 March after the ANC's provincial structure was dissolved.

At the time, the province's provincial executive committee (PEC), chaired by Premier Cassel Mathale, had been dissolved due to "un-ANC behaviour and institutionalised factional conduct".

On 5 April, it was reported that opposition parties in Limpopo came to Mathale's defence against the ruling party.

A Star report stated that the Democratic Alliance and the Congress of the People criticised the ruling party's decision to strip Mathale of his administrative powers, barring him from dispersing tenders.

ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe said at the time that dissolving the PEC would not affect government positions.
