Dlamini-Zuma told an ad hoc committee of the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) which is overseeing their intervention that, while challenges remained in that province, there has been sufficient progress.
“The task team has worked diligently to restore calm in the province, the services that were disrupted during the period of unrest have also been restored and there is ongoing work to build the capacity of the provincial government,” said Dlamini-Zuma.
She suggested that the recruitment of people who are capable of continuing the work her team is doing was the main reason of extending their stay in the province to avoid regression. She said the decision to withdraw will be based not only on the financial management and audit but they have to look at the capacity they are leaving behind, and to ensure systems are in place to ensure continued stability.
“That is why we are looking at ensuring that critical posts are filled before we leave … to hand over properly so that there is continuity and sustainability” she said.
