Province regains control of admin

Premier Stan Mathabatha Premier Stan Mathabatha

Polokwane - The Limpopo government says the decision by national government to give back full control of the administration to the province is exciting news.

The national cabinet recently announced that the administration section 100 1(a) will be completely withdrawn by the end of March next year. Five departments in Limpopo were placed under administration in 2011 by cabinet, because of financial mismanagement and a high level of maladministration. 

Earlier this year, administrators left the province, after ex-Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene announced that the national cabinet decided to return control to five departments that were under administration.

However, the administration section 100 1(a) remained, meaning the five departments do not have full control of their administration.  Premier Stan Mathabathaís spokesperson Kenny Mathivha says the decision is exciting. ìThe administrators actually  left early this year but we were left with section 100 1 (a),î says Mathivha.

Local Governance and Administration analyst from the University of Limpopo, Lucas Nemutanzhela says the intervention period was quite long, so it is welcome news that national government is finally handing back control of administration.

The intervention is not a permanent feature. The period is quite long but important is whether it has set the things right. 

Among the conditions for the provincial government is that all vacant senior positions, including the head of departments, be filled before March next year. SABC
