The Limpopo Province Executive Council Resolutions

By Dexter Mohale and Clarence Mashiane

The Limpopo Province Executive Council had one of its scheduled meetings at the Office of the Premier on Wednesday, 1st June 2016.

 

The Executive Council noted the progress made by the provincial government on the overall spending as at 30th April 2016.The government has spent an amount of R4.2 billion of the total allocated budget of R56.9 billion. The infrastructure expenditure is at R115.3 million.

The Executive Council have also noted efforts by Treasury to ensure that all the departments are complying with section 38 (1) (F) of the Public Finance Management Act which requires that all invoices be paid within 30 days.

Cluster Programme of Action reports for both the JCPS and G & A for the 4th quarter of 2015/16 were approved and have shown tremendous improvements although the Executive Council is of the view that more can still be done i.e. In the JCPS Cluster, 80% of the targets were fully achieved, and only about 17% were not met i.e. The target was to reduce crime by 4% but the province experienced 1.7% increase. So with more visible policing and strengthen community policing, more may still be achieved.

The Executive Council have also approved the youth Month Programme and the Youth Day Collaboration which will take place in Tubatse on the 16th June 2016 at a venue still to be announced.

The Executive Council have noted and appreciated the good work done by the Inter-ministerial Team in securing that there is calm and stability in the Province. The refurbishing and rehabilitation of damaged schools is estimated at above R300 million and the Disaster Management Team have already started with completing the necessary documentations. The Executive Council have raised concerns about the time cost to both leaner’s and teachers and are appealing to both stakeholders to allow young ones to go to schools and teachers to be available to protect the academic year and the future of the learners.
