Political Desk: Govt intends putting North West under administration

President Cyril Ramaphosa has sent a notification to the office of the chairperson of the NCOP, Thandi Modise, stating that the national government will be intervening in the governance of the North West province.

This comes after the back and forth around Premier Supra Mahumapelo's stay in power.

Bongani Bingwa speaks to political analyst Theo Venter from North West University to find out the legalities in the process of placing the province under administration.

A letter was sent on Friday to the administration informing them they are going to invoke section 100 of the Constitution subsection 1. It has basically two parts; A and B.
