Making miracles within 100 days YOLANDE NEL >>observer.yolande@gmail.com

G

iven nine months to lift Limpopo from the doldrums of despair, Premier Stan Mathabatha’s earlier return to the province has brought drastic change as a result of austere measures being dropped into place. The no fear-no favour attitude displayed by Limpopo’s First Citizen during his first 100 days in office has, among others, ensured stringent efforts to recover every penny of taxpayers’ monies allegedly looted in the past. Having recently passed the milestone, Mathabatha has been instrumental in rapidly changing the face of Limpopo, which over time has generated an image of alleged looting ground. As Mathabatha had been adhering to the order from the top to put systems right and clean up the provincial administration, his enormous challenges kept on mounting, said Premier’s Spokesperson Kenny Mathivha. He said as a result urgency has started to become apparent within the public service in Limpopo. His arrival sparked the unblocking of 302 existing cases under investigation for two years, Mathivha pointed out. With it came disciplinary action against scores of officials in the employ of the provincial government in whose names letters were already pending and the suspension of the heads of the Departments of Education and Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (Coghsta) expected to appear in hearings within the next week, stressed Mathivha. All along the round-the-clock work of the Special Investigations Unit in Limpopo continued, assisted in the process by the administrators on

the intervention team perceived to be on an exit, he said. A major focal point, he added, for Mathabatha was to rid supply chain management structures of alleged corrupt elements. By forging ahead with his clean-up action, Mathabatha had to become accustomed to public servants ganging up against the Members of his Executive Council (MECs) while alleging victimisation, Mathivha said. People, he added, usually resisted change. Mathivha predicted that the Premier initially did not truly anticipate the depth of the problem in the administration and most likely did not foresee the enormity of the task ahead. For little over three months now Mathabatha has been caught up in consultations and deliberations, meeting every possible formation or structure, he indicated. Mathivha reiterated Limpopo’s new Premier considered stakeholder engagement as key. Counting among the most recent interaction with role players from different spheres are discussions with farmers’ associations in Polokwane late last week. This, it was learnt, was not an ordinary occurrence during the tenure of Mathabatha predecessor Cassel Mathale. At the time of going to press Mathabatha was engaged in the Exco lekgotla that commenced at a venue outside Polokwane early yesterday (Wednesday) morning, expected to deliver the opening address before receiving feedback on progress made during the current financial year. Mathivha concluded by comparing the recuperation programme Mathabatha has embarked on to a wheelchair-bound patient with a broken leg requiring time to heal, eventually discarding the bandages and being able to walk again.
