Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has appointed several inter-ministerial committees (IMCs), his office said on Thursday.

"The IMCs are appointed by the president [and in certain instances by Cabinet] to serve a very specific purpose that is deemed to require the dedicated attention of a certain team of ministers," spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

The IMC on prevention and combating of corruption will be chaired by Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe.

Justice and Correctional Services Minister Mike Masutha, State Security Minister David Mahlobo, Police Minister Nathi Nhleko, Co-operative Governance Minister Pravin Gordhan, Public Service and Administration Minister Collins Chabane, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba, Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene, and Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini would sit on the committee.

"The purpose of this anti-corruption IMC is to co-ordinate and oversee the work of state organs aimed at fighting and combating the scourge of corruption in the public and private sectors."

An IMC on information and publicity would be responsible for branding and marketing government programmes.

It would consist of the ministers of communications, international relations, trade and industry, finance, co-operative governance, water and sanitation, tourism, environmental affairs, social development, rural development and land reform, and public service and administration.

A group of ministers were appointed to act as a service delivery task team.

"The purpose of the inter-ministerial service delivery task team is to fast-track service delivery in areas where there are bottlenecks, quickly respond to areas where there are service delivery problems, and ensure that general service delivery is improved," Maharaj said.

An IMC on distressed mining communities was set up.

"The purpose of the IMC is to drive and oversee the implementation of the special presidential package for the revitalisation of distressed mining communities."

The ministers of labour, human settlements, mineral resources, finance and economic development were among those sitting on the IMC, which was also chaired by Radebe.

They would be responsible for, among others, improving the working and living conditions of mining communities.

A special IMC would oversee the organisation of state funerals.
