In the past four and half years the ANC - led government in Gauteng has been giving it’s all in undoing the stubborn legacies of the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment, the stubborn legacies bequeathed to our society by the cruel Apartheid system of government of the past.
In tackling this huge task, we have been guided by the 2014 ANC Manifesto commitments that were translated by this 5th Gauteng Administration into the 10 pillar programme of Transformation, Modernization and Re-industrialisation in line with the country's National development plan.
Our mandate has been very clear - to provide services to the vulnerable groups of society, the poorest of the poor and the historically disadvantaged in partnership with civil society in the form of Non- profit organizations. By Vulnerable groups, we refer to orphaned and vulnerable children, unemployed and poor women and youth as well as people with disabilities.
I am grateful that the ANC- led government has delivered on its mandate of improving the quality of life of millions of these Gauteng citizens. As we reflect on the last four and half years we illuminate real and tangible achievements for the people of Gauteng.
Children whose lives have been changed by the ANC wrote to the MEC to express their gratitude. All of them confirm that in deed life is much better under the ANC led government. We share these stories with the readers of Daily Sun.
