The North West is currently placed third from the bottom.

Mabuza will be accompanied among others by the Minister of Health, Dr Joe Phaahla, Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, Thandi Modise, Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu and Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi.

They will be visiting areas around Rustenburg, targeting Kgetlengrivier and Madibeng local municipalities in the Bojanala District.
