Johannesburg - Inner city roads in Mthata in the Eastern Cape are in an "unacceptable" state, Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane said on Friday.

He mandated the director general from the Performance Monitoring and Evaluation unit in the presidency to work with the province's local government department to fix the problem.

Chabane visited the King Sabata Dalindyebo (KSD) municipality on Friday to check on service delivery progress in the municipality.

He was accompanied by the province's Local Government MEC Mlibo Qoboshiyane and KSD Mayor Nonkoliso Ngqongwa.

Chabane found that substantial progress had been recorded in the municipality since 2009 with 25% of catalytic projects completed, 51% under implementation, and 16% still to be funded.

He said construction for the upgrade of informal settlements in Joe Slovo, Chris Hani, Mandela Park, and Phola Park had begun, and that construction of multipurpose centres in Mqanduli and Ngangelizwe were 98% complete.

Water and sanitation projects were still at inception stages.

He said 41% of planned road projects had been completed, and 59% were nearing completion.

The Mthatha N2 bridge was 71% complete and would be operational by April.

"We are encouraged with the work that is being done. However, we have noted that there are challenges in a number of areas which officials are working very hard to address," he said in a statement after the visit.

"We will continue to work together with the province and the municipality to complete all outstanding work."
