Johannesburg - Three North West departments have been placed under administration following years of financial instability and mismanagement.

The departments of health, public works and roads, and education and sport development would be placed under administration for 18 months and have their financial affairs co-managed by the provincial treasury, Premier Supra Mahumapelo announced.

"It is the provincial government’s considered view that this decision was well-timed, noting that the new financial year has just started," Mahumapelo said.

He said proper financial management systems would be put in place to ensure the departments recovered.

The decision to place them under administration was taken at a meeting held in Matlosana at the weekend. He said there would be no interruption of services to the public as a result of the intervention.
