Speaker, the view of the ANC is that our country does not need change in the way government relates to our people and in the delivery of services. Building upon our achievements and learning from our experiences in government since 1994, the ANC is committed to improving the quality of education, health and sanitation and accelerating the delivery of houses to millions of our people to achieve a better life for all.
On 20 October, President Jacob Zuma addressed executive mayors and mayors from all 283 municipalities in South Africa to discuss the strengthening of the local government sphere. The meeting took place at O R Tambo Hall in Khayelitsha, Cape Town. The meeting highlighted the ANC government's determination to improve local government capacity as well as the commitment to search for solutions to challenges facing municipalities and build on progress made over the past few years, as well as acknowledge that a lot more still needs to be done.
The ANC remains in touch with our people and listens to their needs. It is, therefore, committed to a service delivery culture that puts every elected official and public servant to work for our people and ensures accountability to our people. We will continue to develop social partnerships and work with every citizen. Thank you, Speaker. [Applause.]
