Gauteng MEC Blames Coalitions for Failing Roads in Shocking Announcement



Gauteng MEC Dialeg-Tlabela blames failing coalitions for dire state of roads.

Kedibone Diale-Tlabela, Gauteng MEC for Roads and Transport, has attributed the poor state of the province’s roads to political instability and failing coalitions. Speaking in Soshanguve, north of Tshwane, where the department launched its annual Easter road safety campaign, Diale-Tlabela acknowledged that poorly maintained roads, including potholes, unpaved roads and poor visibility, were contributing to road accidents. However, she highlighted that political instability in some councils in parts of the country was deteriorating service delivery.

According to Eyewitness News, the MEC stated that the Gauteng provincial government was considering interventions to address the issue but also suggested that fewer cars on the road could help reduce road damage. She proposed that using taxis could alleviate the problem of heavy traffic in some streets not designed for such use. Diale-Tlabela encouraged residents to partner with Ward 35 to create awareness about the importance of using public transport to help reduce the number of cars on the road.
