By Maanda Mulaudzi

Premier Chupu Stanley Mathabatha said that his government support the proposal by Minister Pravin Gordon to the Municipal Demarcation Board for the redetermination of boundaries, and appeal to the people of Malamulele to support this process and to pursue their demands within the confines of the law. He said this during his State of the Province Address to the fifth Limpopo Provincial Legislature at Lebowakgomo on 24 February 2015.

 

Premier Mathabatha told people of Malamulele that however legitimate their complaints could be his government condemn in strongest possible terms disruption of schools and the education of children in the name of service delivery protests. He also condemn the destruction of property and infringement of people’s rights to receive services as a way to protest

He told Members of the Legislature that his government has put aside an amount of R3.187 billion to upgrade gravel roads and to tar others over the next three years. “These projects will include the so called”Bermuda “roads that were started in the past and were not concluded due to budgetary constraints. The distance to be covered will be no less than 344kms”.

“Over the past 21 years of democracy, in Limpopo alone, we have build no less than three hundred thousand houses, benefiting about 1.4 million households. Bendor Extension 100 project has finally commenced. The project is poised to benefit 756 households and business people”.

“The people who ordinarily would not qualify for housing loans from commercial banks will finally benefit and have houses of their own-here I am referring to those people who are too rich for an RDP houses, yet poor for a mortgage bond”.

“In the same spirit we will be handing over Seshego Community Residential Units project to the deserving beneficiaries in the next two months. This is paradigm shift from the single sex hostel to family units which will assist in our social cohesion agenda. There is no doubt that the concept of integrated human settlement has indeed begun to take shape”.

“As a measure of supporting the institution of traditional leadership, government will purchase vehicles for traditional leaders over the next medium term period. The MECs of CogGHSTA and Provincial Treasury, in consultation with the House of Traditional Leaders will work-out a mechanism in terms of which these vehicles will be allocated to traditional leaders over this period”. He said.
