Cabinet met on Wednesday, 18 September 2019 at Tuynhuys in Cape Town

According to a statement released by Ms Phumla Williams, Acting Director-General at GCIS, it said that Cabinet welcomed the official launch by President Cyril Ramaphosa, of the new District Based Development Model in the OR Tambo District Municipality, in the Eastern Cape.

The model brings together the three spheres of government to collaborate, cooperate and integrate their work with special reference to the district to address developmental challenges and promote service delivery, localised procurement and job creation. This model was endorsed by Cabinet, local government structures, traditional authorities and the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC).

Whilst OR Tambo District was the first to officially launch this model, it will be rolled-out to all 44 districts and 8 metros across the country.  It brings government closer to the people by involving citizens and stakeholders in the development of one plan to deliver a plethora of services and create economic opportunities at a basic district level.

President Ramaphosa   officially opened the NHI ready Lusikisiki village clinic, which will drive universal healthcare.  The clinic is fitted with amongst others state of the art equipment, emergency services and a 24-hour maternity ward.

President Ramaphosa also engaged the OR Tambo District community on Gender Based Violence and identified the critical need for more Thuthuzela Centres in the area and the urgent establishment of a DNA laboratory in the Eastern Cape.

25-Year Review Report

Cabinet approved the release of the   25 Year Review Report 1994 – 2019. The Report assesses progress by government (in partnership with its social partners) in delivering on its commitment of a better life for all South Africans.

The assessment which was led by the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) entailed consultations to obtain perspectives and insights from various stakeholders. These included business, labour, academics, non-governmental organisations and various government departments. Colloquiums in this regards were also held, which included eminent persons from our continent.

The report highlights areas of progress such as universal access to basic education; expansion to higher education, access to free health services in the public sector and the implementation of the social wage.  It also highlights several challenges, which impede our adequate response to unemployment, poverty alleviation and inequality.  Key to these challenges is our inability to address the structural dimension of the country’s economy.

Cabinet also approved that the respective national departments and Provinces can release their respective detailed 25-year reviews as well.

President Cyril Ramaphosa will officially launch SA 25 Year Review 1994 – 2019 in due course.
