Johannesburg - A team of experts has been appointed to improve the running of North West's Madibeng municipality, the provincial local government department said on Thursday.

The move followed a recommendation by a ministerial task team sent to Madibeng, it said in a statement.

The team's brief was to assess a report by a previous administrator.

"The recommendations by the [task] team were supported by [Co-operative Governance Minister Richard] Baloyi, North West Premier Thandi Modise and the acting MEC for local government and traditional affairs, Paul Sebegoe," said the department.

Sebegoe said the team comprised both national and provincial government officials.

It would help Madibeng develop, introduce and oversee recommendations made previously to improve financial management and service delivery.

"The team, which will function for a period of six months, has started operating on 4 June and has already had a briefing session with the mayoral committee," the department said.
