The Limpopo government has reacted with shock to research findings that the province, with Mpumalanga, is the worst for service delivery.

The survey was conducted by PNS research.

Provincial government spokesman Mogale Nchabeleng said yesterday it was not possible that Limpopo was one of the provinces that performed badly.

In June a community survey by Statistics South Africa showed more than 72 percent of households in Limpopo had electricity and no less than 82 percent had water on tap.

Former Minister for Public Administration Geraldine FraserMoleketi announced, after doing private research, that Limpopo was the best in terms of its Community Development Workers [CDWs], Nchabeleng said.

"Our CDWs outclassed the rest in terms of house-to-house family profiling. That is a plus for the province," Nchabeleng said.

He said the auditor-general, a Markinor Survey and the Afrobarometer had all declared Limpopo the best performing province for service delivery.

Sello Moloto was the best performing premier in the 2006-07 financial year, while in the 2007-08 financial year he was third best," he said.

"In the 2006-07 financial year all departments received qualified reports from the auditor-general, while in the 2007-08 financial year only five departments got qualified reports. This is a significant improvement."
