Wrap-up Media Briefing Following a Three-day NCOP Inspection Visits to Service Delivery Sites in the Eastern Cape

Parliament� The National Council of Provinces (NCOP) delegation led by its Deputy Chairperson, Mr Raseriti Tau, invites members of the media to a wrap-up media briefing following a three-day inspection visits by seven groups of national and provincial members of Parliament as part of Taking Parliament to the People (TPTTP) programme.

The three-day NCOP visit entailed inspection visits to service delivery sites identified for interventions in 2016 and a series of report-back meetings with communities in six areas across the Alfred Nzo District and Buffalo City Metropolitan municipalities. The Media Briefing will be held at the Premier Hotel in East London ICC on Friday 16 March at 10:00.

Taking Parliament to the People is a flagship programme of the NCOP which brings together all three spheres of government with the legislative sector to help accelerate service delivery at the coal face. It involves unmediated - face to face engagement of the citizens with their representatives in Parliament and Legislatures, where service delivery challenges are identified, solutions recommended and commitments made by government to improve lives of the people.
