The Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs
As a Department with a sole mandate of supporting municipalities in carrying out their mandate of delivering services, the Department has been seized with the task of ensuring that municipalities ultimately reach the sustainability stage and are able to deliver services that are responsive to the needs of the communities. This has however not been an easy task as some municipalities are still plagued by poor capacity challenges, coupled with high staff turnover and shortage of skills needed in municipalities to turn the situation around. This process needs to incorporate and be done in partnership with traditional institutions, under whose jurisdiction the majority of the areas without services lie. Despite all these challenges, the Department has over the past year responded positively to these challenges by ensuring that the Department has adequate capacity to assist these municipalities and is strategically positioned to assist its clients, namely the municipalities and traditional institutions.
