LADYBRAND. Z The Free State National Council of Provinces (NCOP) delegation was impressed with the progress made in the Mantsopa Municipality and in the Mangaung Metro.

According to their report, over 51 000 people who reside in the Mantsopa Municipality have a 98,3% chance of finding the medication they need when they visit the Senorita Ntlabathi District Hospital in Ladybrand.

The pharmacist at the hospital told delegates of the NCOP who visited the facility on Wednesday (14/09) as part of the Provincial Week programme, that the hospital has 98,3% medicine availability for patients who visit the facility.

The NCOP delegates were joined by their provincial legislature counterparts as they visited various education and health services projects in the Mangaung Metro and the Mantsopa Municipality.

The institutions visited so far include the Bainsvlei Hostel, the Bainsvlei Clinic, the Grassland Primary School and the Senorita Ntlabathi Hospital.

“I am very impressed with the progress made at the places we visited since the start of this NCOP programme.

“I would gladly present myself for admission at this hospital.

“It is very clean and has top notch facilities,” the NCOP provincial whip for the Free State, Lydia Moshodi, said.

The hospital was built to replace the old Mantsopa Hospital that serviced 51 056 people who live in the five towns that form the Mantsopa Municipality.

These five towns are Ladybrand, Hobhouse, Tweespruit, Thaba-Phatswa and Excelsior.

The delegation was also impressed with the other projects.

“The hostel we visited is contri-buting positively to the provision of a conducive learning environment for the learners in the Bainsville area.

“The school stands a much better chance of maintaining that 98% matric pass rate it achieved last year,” said Moshodi.
