The premier promised the money as well as 35 vehicles that were dispatched will deal with service delivery issues in the area.

Illegal dumping sites and sewerage running in the streets might become a thing of the past in Sedibeng, Gauteng after Gauteng Premier Panyaza Lesufi promised that they will deal with the issues.

Lesufi touched on five basics service delivery issues faced by Sedibeng residents and claimed ‘dealing with them, means the government has started making a dent in service delivery’.

The premier said R400m has been set aside to help deal with the service delivery problems and about 35 vehicles were dispatched to deal with sewerage.

His remarks were made during Deputy President Paul Mashatile’s visit on Wednesday. The visit was a follow-up to last year’s service delivery imbizo.
