Madibeng will remain under administration

The Madibeng municipality will remain under administration until it stabilises, the MEC for Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs, Mmoloki Cwaile told Parliament this week.

He said most of the problems in municipalities in North West were the result of political factional infighting.

Madibeng was placed under Section 139 (1) (b) administration early in 2020 and it was extended in August 2020. This will be the third time within a year that administration in Madibeng is extended. It will now remain under administration until the elections in October 2021.
