Durban - KwaZulu-Natal government leaders and officials on Monday gathered in Durban to set service delivery targets for 2010.

The gathering was also attended by Collins Chabane, the minister in the presidency responsible for monitoring and evaluation.

"What will be discussed today will be announced during the State of the Province address. We will also review our performance," said Premier Zweli Mkhize speaking during the opening of the gathering.

The media was asked to leave when Chabane made his presentation because "some of the things he would talk about would be contained in President Jacob Zuma’s State of the Nation address on Thursday".

More action


Mkhize, who took over the premiership from Sbusiso Ndebele nine months ago, promised more "action" in 2010.

One of the things he said would be implemented was the agrarian revolution he announced with much fanfare when he was appointed, and a fight against fraud and corruption.

He was not happy that many officials were doing business with the government they worked for.

"We are not happy with the situation and we need to deal with this matter urgently, because it really affects our attempts to do work professionally and effectively," he said.

The province would not achieve its service delivery targets if officials were not working hard and handling government funds effectively.

"Our government can not achieve its targets if officials do not correct the issue of overspending. Everyone must get involved in making sure that unnecessary spending is cut," said Mkhize.
