Gauteng premier, David Makhura, on Tuesday spoke out strongly against corruption while divulging intensified efforts to deliver key services to residents.

702's Xolani Gwala speaks to Makhura on the big issues: e-tolls, the province's GDP and pertinent issues of good governance at provincial government.

Watch the interview below:

We are a big part of the economy. When Gauteng is doing better then it's an indication that the country is doing better.

David Makhura, Gauteng premier

We are focusing on addressing the fundamental issues regarding the economy, regarding education, regarding health and sorting out infrastructure.

David Makhura, Gauteng premier

We're addressing housing issues, that arise also from the 200 000 people every year coming into our economy here.

David Makhura, Gauteng premier

I am convinced that the point that we can't allow the state to be captured by few individuals and used for their selfish interests is understood.

David Makhura, Gauteng premier

Strong institutions are better than strong individuals...We shouldn't allow the institutions of our democracy to be captured.

David Makhura, Gauteng premier
