CAPE TOWN - Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille says there's no such thing as a flawlessly-run city.

The mayor presented the City of Cape Town's mid-term review on Wednesday, outlining progresses made by the municipality since she took office three years ago.

She highlighted, in particular, the more than 30,000 job opportunities that have been created.

But admitted perfect service delivery still eludes the City Council.

"We have tried our best to provide access to all the people of the City of Cape Town. But what has kept us back is the growth and urbanisation. Cape Town is growing so fast."

Service delivery protests in the Western Cape have been marred by violence, arrests and damage to private and public property.

The city is spending millions these damages.
