Zuma pushes faster delivery

2010-03-19 14:47

BASIC service delivery must be quicker and faster, President Jacob

Zuma said on Friday.

“It is not good for people to live in shacks for over 20 years.

Basic service delivery must be quicker, faster and smarter to improve the lives

of our people,” Zuma said at the Madelakufa settlement in Tembisa.

He was in Tembisa to report back to the community on progress made

since his last visit to the area in November. At the time, the community

complained about houses, water and toilets.

Zuma said a lot had been done since then.

The Ekurhuleni municipality was developing an area where 450 houses

would be built by the end of November.

“Government must respond when the people speak to give courage to

those who are working to better the lives of our people and to deepen the hope

for those waiting for houses and other services from the government,” Zuma said.
