MANGAUNG – Free State Prime Minister Sisi Ntombela said Mangaung Municipality is grappling with several issues including service delivery issues.

Ntombela delivered the welcoming address at Dr Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein, where President Cyril Ramaphosa is visiting for the Imbizo Nation’s second post-state presidential address.

This event is intended to help discuss ways to improve service delivery.

Ntombela thanked the president for his work saying “Mr. President, we thank you. You bring us hope and uplift us. You did the unthinkable and saved us from COVID-19. You saved us at a time when we had lost hope. You stood firm and strong.

Some residents criticized Ramaphosa for failing to act on municipalities that failed to provide services to communities.

Resident Thabiso Kgadiyenyana said the president did not pressure local government officials.

“We don’t get any service delivery. Regarding waste collection, this is a problem. When you walk the streets of Mangaung, you find garbage. It is true, Mr President, when you come to Bloemfontein, it is the only time you see these roads being cleaned.
