WC outperforms other provinces on service delivery

The DA in the Western Cape welcomes the release of the “non-financial census of municipalities” report by StatsSA.

The report, which measured service delivery of municipalities between 30 June 2020 and 30 June 2021, once again found that as service delivery regresses across the country, the DA-run Western Cape continues to be a beacon of hope and progress.

Key findings from the report shows that:

— At 39,8%, the Western Cape has the highest number of consumer units receiving free basic water services;
— At 27,9%, the province has the highest number of consumer units receiving free basic electricity services;
— At 45,8%, the Western Cape has the highest number of consumer units receiving free basic sewerage and sanitation services; and
— At 44,8%, the province has the highest number of consumer units receiving free basic solid waste management services.

These statistics reinforce the Auditor General’s municipal audit outcomes released in May this year which found that 21 municipalities in the province achieved clean, unqualified audits. This proves that clean governance does translate to service delivery.
