13 Jul Will reduction in number of provinces result in better service delivery?
The ANC is to continue with plans to reduce from 9 to 6, the number of provinces in South Africa. It's a decision the party took in 2007. A call was made at its policy conference last week, for a Presidential Commission to be set up and for its work to be completed before the party's elective conference in December. The ANC says the call for the reduction is a bid to improve service delivery, and has nothing to do with the upcoming elections in 2019. Sakina Kamwendo spoke with ANC NEC member, Obed Bapela and Political analyst, Joe Mavuso
