You can find the Overview report on the National State of Local Government Assessment here.

It makes for interesting reading

If you consider that there are only 283 municipalities in South Africa, then it means that at least 22% of them are in serious trouble.

Interesting how the distress pattern mirrors the old black African migratory path.

VI, you racist bastard!

I have to confess though that after seeing Jeff Dunham's Achmed the dead terrorist clip, hearing the "racist bastard" bit has me crawling on the floor with laughter nowadays.

Not only because it's sooooo damn funny, but also the fact that the sketch is actually a reflection of real life - racism accusations being uttered by racists.

Sorry VI, couldn't resist.
