THE expected 10000 capacity crowd at Peter Mokaba Stadium to listen to Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale present his state of the province address yesterday did not materialise.

Even the 2500-seater grandstand still had enough space to accommodate half of the other people who were seated in tents on the pitch.

Those who attended the event found it difficult to concentrate as a result of the chilly weather.

But Mathale would not let the weather deter him.

He spoke fondly about his government's plans to set up a task team to look into issues of responsibilities of departments and their possible renaming.

Among other things, Mathale said, they would create no less than 5000 public service job opportunities before the end of the year.
