State of local municipalities

A comprehensive report on how to operate efficiently in municipalities will be finalised soon

Local government under scrutiny

The ministry has completed the consultation process where a draft current state of local government report was presented to all municipalities for comment. This has paved a way for finalising a comprehensive report.

The Local Government Turn Around Strategy (LGTAS) marked a new chapter in local government when it was adopted by the cabinet as a blue print for new ways of doing things in local government. 

The strategy was a direct response to local government challenges that were identified as a stumbling block to the effective functioning of municipalities. The state of local government was elaborately recorded in the State of Local Government Report which was compiled by the Ministry of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs in 2009.
