ANC in Fezile Dabi Region

By Thys Khiba – The African National Congress (ANC) in Fezile Dabi region in Free State has raised concerns about the declining quality of service delivery by local municipalities, at party regional executive committee (REC) meeting.

This comes after the first meeting of the party REC which was held on the 9 February 2023, in Kroonstad in Moqhaka Local Municipality.

The region consists of four local municipalities, namely Moqhaka, Metsimaholo, Ngwathe and Mafube.

“An analysis on the state of Governance and service delivery across local municipalities in the Region was undertaken, the REC raised concerns regarding the declining quality of services provided to our people as well as the absence of consequence management against those responsible,” said ANC regional secretary, Thabo Mabasa.

The party has promised to address service delivery related issues and ensure that government officials and leaders account in all municipalities.

“The REC recommitted itself to wage a relentless battle against poor service delivery and ensure that there is accountability and consequence management in all the municipalities, including those where we are an opposition,” said Mabasa.



This follows service delivery protests by disgruntled residents in Tumahole, Parys in Ngwathe Local Municipality and Maokeng, Kroonstad in Moqhaka Local Municipality.

The house of the newly elected regional chairperson and Mayor, Victoria de Beer-Mthombeni’s parents at Parys has been destroyed by a blaze during a community protest on Monday, 16 January 2023.

Meanwhile, residents of Maokeng have vowed to continue with their protest until their demand are met on Monday, 16 January 2023.

During his address in Mpumalanga Stadium in Hammarsdale at the ANC’s 111th anniversary celebration, party secretary general Fikile Mbalula said the ANC has declared 2023 the year of decisive action to advance the people’s interest and renew the movement.

“It should be seen that the ANC is in power. The fighting should stop and we must work for the people. Also important in this year of deliverance is to fix the electricity crisis, because we can see we are being lied to even though we are in power,” said Mbalula.
