The North West Province is expecting a noticeable difference in municipalities and traditional councils following the newly developed 2016 Turn-around Strategy, North West Premier Thandi Modise said on Friday.
Premier Modise said that the strategy is intended to revamp, realign and re-energise municipalities and institutions of traditional leaders to maximise accountability, effective service delivery and good governance. It was developed after challenges encountered were re-looked into and interventions declared where necessary.
"The strategy will mainly concentrate on leadership alignment, clean audit by 2014, capacity building, financial management and viability as well as stability and governance in traditional councils," said Modise
The Premier said implementation of the strategy would be accompanied by a proper monitoring and evaluation on the ground. A comprehensive report would be submitted to reflect on progress made which would also recommend a way forward.
