SEBOKENG - Gauteng Premier David Makhura called for unity during his State of the Province Address in Sebokeng close to Vereeniging on Monday.

In his speech the premier also said Gauteng plans on turning Sedibeng into a city.

He was delivering his State of the Province Address there. 

“The first fully flagged post-apartheid city, the Vaal River city is being built here in Sedibeng on the banks of the great Vaal river. Honourable members this will be a real post-apartheid city that will integrate Sharpeville into a new central business district and ensure that our people work closer to where they live,Makhura said.

 

According to the premier most departments in the province have been performing well.

“We are particularly encouraged that 19 of our departments and agencies including the office of the Premiere achieved clean audits in the 2014/2015 financial year. Hon members, only one department and one agency didn’t meet our expectations. Although the department of health did not meet our expectations of an unqualified audit, they have significant improvement in its finances and service delivery  response. I’m very confident that this department will join the list of clean audits during our term in office,” said Makhura
