Ahead of the municipal polls in November, opposition parties have continued to poke at the ruling party, the African National Congress (ANC) for collapsing service delivery in various municipalities like in Emfuleni.

According to reports, the ruling party is currently struggling politically as statistics have revealed a drastic decline in the number of areas being controlled by the ANC.

Judging by the 2016 elections ANC controls 56% of votes compared to the 70% it controlled in 2011 as pressure continues to mount on the ruling party.

In what has become a glaring shortcoming for the ruling party, opposition parties like the DA, EFF, and ActionSA have continued to harp on the poor service delivery of the ANC over the years.

In a similar event, residents and stakeholders of Emfuleni have continued to lament bitterly on the inability of the ruling party to uphold their campaign promises in providing basic amenities for residents.

Similarly, Peter Verbeek of the DA said that recent development across municipalities has shown that the ANC is not capable of good governance.

Reacting to this, the ruling party has vehemently denied that it was responsible for the poor service delivery in Emfuleni.

ANC’s Bob Mthembu said: “The allegations lack substance and are not factually correct. The Emfuleni local municipality has not collapsed. However, there are challenges as far as the provision of services is concerned.”
