One of the three cities in the GCR, ekurhuleni, falls second last, and some way (0,15) behind the mean. the manufacturing base in Ekurhuleni has suffered as a result of the global recession, while service delivery has also been poor, and unhappiness with the quality of service delivery in Ekurhuleni correspondingly high.
Ekurhuleni needs to elevate its investment platforms to avoid a lengthy (or even terminal) decline.
There is a marginal 0,12 difference (out of 10) between the mid-range cities and municipalities, from tshwane in third place to emfuleni, third from the bottom. if targeting is to include a spatial element, this should help inform the provincial strategy.
