Letsema programme aims to boost quality of life in City of Tshwane | Pretoria News – Independent Online

Pretoria – One of the City of Tshwane’s responsibilities is first and foremost to ensure that residents enjoy an increased ­quality of life and efficient service delivery.

According to the accelerated service delivery mandate, this responsibility extends to the provision of housing, water and electricity supply, street lighting, waste removal and other local services.

Housing has proven a challenge, especially with the consistently increasing trend of migration to urban hubs such as the City of Tshwane.

According to Statistics SA, a quarter of South Africa’s documented population lives in Gauteng.

This has a trickle effect on the province’s economic hubs, especially with the housing backlog dating back as far as 1996.
