As we indicated in the reply, these provisions were set out. We have reached a stage where, as I indicated, in the vast majority of cases municipal managers and senior managers accountable to them have complied with three out of the four requirements. That is progress.
Many of these municipalities have come back and indicated that there are constraints. This is not a matter that deserves trivialisation. Many of those municipalities have made out solid cases. They have made out cases of constraints that they have experienced. They have also indicated in certain cases that there are municipal managers and senior managers who, in other respects, are absolutely eminently suitable and who are in fact doing brilliant work, but who technically are not in compliance with this. We have made it very clear that we don't condone that noncompliance, but they have gone through a process of requesting an extension.
I would say, let us wait for that period to take its course. We are monitoring it carefully and we are supporting those municipalities. Let us not pre-empt the matter. Thank you very much. [Applause.]
