Cape Town - Western Cape Premier Alan Winde on Thursday delivered his first State of the Province Address, focusing on the four key areas of delivery over the next five years.
These priorities included a commitment to create more jobs and economic opportunities, an undertaking to fight crime across the province and a pledge to come up with initiatives on spatial transformation.
On crime, the premier said, “The reality is, our entire criminal justice system is in a dire state of disrepair. This is why we established a Court Watching Briefs unit, which monitors court cases and ensures that criminals are effectively prosecuted.”
Winde also spoke about encouraging agricultural education.
“An injection of new, young talent into this sector will transform and revitalise it so that we can leverage our natural resources, leading to more jobs and food security into the future.”
