Last night an inter-ministerial committee, comprising of government departments including Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs or COGTA, met with the Alexandra Community in the North of Johannesburg.
The City of Johannesburg was not part of the gathering. The meeting comes after weeks of service delivery protests, which included amongst other things, a backlog of housing and filth in the area.
COGTA Minister Zweli Mkhize committed to adopt an inter-governmental approach in order to address the situation. Morning Live did invite COGTA to be interviewed however they were not available.
