THE executive committee of the Limpopo provincial government is to hold a two-day lekgotla at Bolivia Lodge, outside Polokwane, on Monday and Tuesday.

This follows the ANC lekgotla that was held at Bela Bela in Limpopo on Sunday and Monday last week.

The meeting will discuss the five-year plan for the province with the focus on the five key priorities of the ANC.

The priorities were decided during the provincial ANC conference held at the University of Venda in July last year.

The lekgotla will be attended by, among others, premier Cassel Mathale and his cabinet, executive mayors and managers from the five districts of the province, chief executives of government parastatals, such as Eskom, regional managers from the departments of minerals and energy, land and water affairs, and traditional leaders.

Spokesperson for the Limpopo provincial government Mohale Nchabeleng said the planned meeting will discuss issues that would form the state-of-the-province address by the premier on June 11 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Nchabeleng said issues of most importance, such as job creation, combating of crime, access roads, bridges and good health facilities were likely to top the agenda at the lekgotla.

He said Mathale would step into President Zuma's shoes in his state-of-the-nation address by making sure that the most important of basic services are channeled in places where there was little improvement, such as rural areas.
