Joburg’s Operation Lokisa aims to cut service delivery protests

In a bid to reduce service delivery protests across Johannesburg, Operation Lokisa, which means fix, or sort out in Sesotho, was spearheaded by the Chair of Chairs in the council, councillor Alex Christians.

The aim is to attend to specific and urgent issues that were raised by residents a long time ago but not attended to.

Christians and the chairpersons of Section 79 committees conducted an oversight visit to various old-age homes around Westdene, Riverlea and Reuven.

The MMC for Finance, Funzela Ngobeni, who is also the leader of executive business, and the newly appointed MMC for Housing, Meshack van Wyk also joined the inspection.

“Among other things, this programme should be able to enhance communication and interface with community members; review, monitor and evaluate departmental policies; plans and the budget implementation impact,” Christians said.

He also cautioned that departments should not over-promise communities when there is no budget committed for projects.
