Black Sash Submission to Ad Hoc Committee on Service Delivery

Service Delivery issues in South Africa are complex, multi-dimensional, interrelated and interdependent on a range of issues – some of which we hope to demonstrate in our submission.  The quality of service delivery is for us not just a measure of how far we have realized our Constitutional commitments to social protection, but also a key indicator of South Africa’s progress towards a meaningful democracy characterized by good governance, accountability, social cohesion and stability.  As such we all have real reason to be concerned at our apparent inability as a nation to confront and solve the many and manifest problems in the area of service delivery across the range of government responsibilities.
