SBM is one of the best

A new independent report released by Ratings Afrika has found the best performing municipalities in South Africa are in the Western Cape (WC). According to the latest Municipal Financial Stability Index report, the top five municipalities in the WC are Mossel Bay, Saldanha Bay, City of Cape Town, Swartland and Overstrand Municipalities. Anton Bredell, the minister of Local Government in the WC, says the WC scored an average rating of 53 out of 100 across its thirty municipalities. This is the highest in the country.

“The second highest scoring province was KwaZulu-Natal with 39 and in third place was the Northern Cape with 33. The report looks at how municipalities manage their money, and how this impacts service delivery in their areas.”

Bredell says most municipalities in WC fared well and scored above 50 with a few exceptions only.

“The worst performing municipality in the Western Cape is Beaufort West which scored 18 out of 100. My department continues to work with all the municipalities that are not faring as well as we’d like. We aim to improve the situation. For now, we want to celebrate the results and congratulate all our councils which have fared well.”

Bredell says independent reports are critical weathervanes indicating the ability of a municipality to provide services and a better life to the people in its communities.
