The survey saw the capital city emerging tops against its peers such as Ekurhuleni and Johannesburg.

Premier David Makhura congratulated the City of Tshwane for this achievement in his inaugural state of the province address at Thokoza Auditorium in Ekurhuleni yesterday.

Makhura said Tshwane's achievement was a challenge for other municipalities in the province to copy what was working in the city.

Mayor Kgosientso Ramokgopa told the Pretoria News he was humbled by the accolades from the State of the Province address and the appreciation by Makhura of the work Tshwane was doing.

'We believe the accolades are words of inspiration which should fire us to greater heights to improve efficiencies, better service delivery and continuous engagement and cooperation with our people,' he said.

Ramokgopa said the city's Vision 2055 had mobilised the entire city administration and staff at the coalface of service delivery to excel.

'The increased capital spending, the number of public private partnerships, focus on youth development and economic participation catapulted the City of Tshwane to be the best in Gauteng.

'We look forward to heightened support, co-operation and improved intergovernmental relations with the provincial administration under Makhura's leadership,' the mayor added.
