Mpumalanga premier David Mabuza says for the ANC to deliver on its mandate, the government, business, labour and civil society has to go into the mode of "Business Unusual".
Speaking at an assembly of the South African Local Government Association (Salga) in Loskop yesterday, Mabuza said councillors need to work hard to achieve the ANC's five priorities: creation of decent work and sustainable livelihoods; education; health; rural development, food security and land reform, and the fight against crime and corruption.
He questioned the lack of delivery by municipalities.
"The capacity of our municipalities to discharge their constitutional obligations remains a cause for concern," Mabuza said.
He said poor recruitment policies and lack of financial management skills at municipal level were the main problems.
He offered as the provincial government to collaborate with Salga to strengthen the municipalities' capacities to meet service delivery targets.
Mabuza said poor quality of planning and fragmented implementation of government programmes across the three spheres of government became major constraints to achieve delivery.
