On 20 June 2022,  Newzroom Afrika looked at the state of municipalities – and particularly the metros. The political problems in some metros – look at the instability in Nelson Mandela Bay for so long – and then the water problems that were partially a result of that – or fighting over Tshwane that ended up in the constitutional court or the situation in Mangaung, the only metro currently to be in administration by the national government.
