WC Premier Alan Winde welcomes new extension to 2022 census count
Premier Alan Winde has welcomed yet another extension of the 2022 census count.
CAPE TOWN - Premier Alan Winde has welcomed yet another extension of the 2022 census count.
The deadline, which was meant to be Saturday, has been moved to 31 May.
Only 70% of the Western Cape's population has been counted.
Winde again warned service delivery in the province would suffer a major blow if this trend continued.
The province stands to lose over 16% of its provincial equitable share if only 70% of residents get counted.
This would shave R2.6 billion in funding off the health budget and R4.2 billion off the education budget with smaller departments also suffering losses.
