Free State Premier Sisi Ntombela says the provincial government will continue to deliver on its mandate to change the lives of the people.
Speaking recently at a service delivery outreach programme in Maluti-A-Phofung Local Municipality, Ntombela stressed the importance of leaders remaining rooted in their respective communities.
“The only way for us to know our people’s needs is to remain rooted in our communities,” said Ntombela, emphasising that for as long as that is the case, the government would not have problems delivering services.
The Premier noted that while the governing party has done wonders in delivery services to the masses, a lot more still needs to be done. “Once you dislodge yourself from ordinary, certain things will not go accordingly. When we are close to our people, there will not be a need for us to even ask what is it that our people want because we would automatically know since we’re part of them,” she said.
Since her reign as premier, Ntombela has been lauded for her commitment to women and children.
As part of the provincial government’s drive to improve the lives of the people, Ntombela also handed over a new house to the Lintoe family from Mangaung, Phase 7. She had committed to assist the family during her first visit to the area.
The house is one of eight that the Premier will hand over to the beneficiaries. She was accompanied by health MEC Montsheng Tsiu.
