Johannesburg - Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane must deliver on the promises made in Monday's state of the province address, the DA said.

"Her track record is not good, however, particularly in the area of job creation," Democratic Alliance provincial leader Jack Bloom said.

"Not a single one of the six Township Enterprise Hubs promised last year have been built, and we are now told that the strategy has been 'revised'."

The proposed industrial development zone in Diepsloot was promising, but it needed to happen rather than remaining an unfulfilled promise.

Late payments

"I am very disappointed that Mokonyane had nothing to say about paying companies within the statutory 30 days," said Bloom.

"This is because late payments continue, putting many small businesses under financial strain, with some even going bankrupt."

He said it remained to be seen whether the turnaround strategy implemented for the provincial health department would be effective, as the department was still plagued by problems.

"The premier was also silent on the e-tolling of Gauteng highways, no doubt because Gauteng residents are hugely opposed to this," he said.

The DA would monitor the promises made by Mokonyane over the next year, with the addresses to be debated in the provincial legislature on Friday, said Bloom.
