Dr Zweli Mkhize shares views on Mama Winnie & the state of our municipality

On #TheKarimaBrownShow, Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Dr Zweli Mkhize shares his views of Winnie Mandela, and chats about his plans to turn the municipalities around.

Dr Mkhiza says that the vibrancy, spirit and jovial mood at Winnie Mandela’s memorial service was befitting because she was being celebrated. He adds that Winnie Mandela was a leader above party politics and often treated oppositional leaders as friends.

We need to always understand that there’s a lot that unites us as the leaders of our organisations, and also as leaders of our people.

Winnie's history has always been centered around fighting, struggle and courage says Dr Mkhize. He adds that she found herself in difficult situations but she was always there.

As the conversation shifted from Winnie Mandela to the upkeep of the municipality, Dr Mkhize mentioned that the starting point is to recognise the good work that many municipalities do. He adds that there are a lot of Government Departments that have resources that need to be coordinated.

I question everyone quite thoroughly when it comes to qualifications says Dr Mkhize. He adds that they only reserve positions for people who are qualified and have experience.

Dr Mkhize says that they keep a record of misconducts and have a team responsible for spotting discrepancies. The Government spends most of its money on the municipalities and we need to be able to balance that up adds Dr Mkhize

We are not recycling people who have been removed because of incompetence.
