Western Cape Premier Alan Winde reflects on how the newly appointed national Cabinet will impact on the province.

Western Cape Premier Alan Winde reflects on how the newly appointed national Cabinet will impact on certain priorities in the province.

He commended President Cyril Ramaphosa on reducing the number of Cabinet members from 36 to 28 but thinks there are too many deputy ministers.

He also commented on the appointed of Patricia de Lille as Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure.

Patricia has been calling when she was the mayor that we need the Public Works land for housing for human settlement in the City of Cape Town, so auntie Pat, we need it.

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government

He adds in his plea to De Lille.

Now is your chance to do exactly what you've been calling out for years, now is the time to transfer that land to the City of Cape Town.

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government

Commenting on the new Cabinet, Winde says he is happy that the Department of Economic Development and Department of Trade and Industry have been merged.

He says the Department of Small Business Development should have been added in the mix but he is pleased that the president has appointed Khumbudzo Ntshavheni as the minister in that department.

Safety and security are still big concerns in the Western Cape, says Winde.

I have had a big fight with Bheki Cele in the last while. Personally I am prepared to say let's start again, let's throw a bit of a white flag and see what we can do because at the end of the day we have to do whatever it takes to get a safer environment.

Alan Winde, Premier - Western Cape Government

Winde also spoke about offering the ANC the position of chair of Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) in Western Cape.

He says he believes the ANC will accept.
