Johannesburg - The DA in Gauteng has urged Premier David Makhura to improve access to quality healthcare and to attract investments in the economic hub of the country.
DA Gauteng caucus leader Solly Msimanga made the call ahead of Makhura delivering his much-awaited State of the Province Address (SOPA) at the University of Johannesburg in Soweto on Monday.
Msimanga said SOPA takes place at a critical time as Gauteng is facing serious challenges of unemployment, lack of service delivery, as well as high levels of crime and corruption.
He also commented on Auditor-General Kimi Makwetu's 2017/18 municipal report which found that the DA-led Midvaal local municipality was the only municipality in the province that had obtained a clean audit outcome for five consecutive years.
“It is deeply concerning that some of our municipalities are failing to obtain clean audit outcomes due to the lack of financial accountability, maladministration and corruption.
