ANC learning an expensive lesson through cadre deployment.

15 June 2014, 18:56


The Bloemhof tragedy is legacy to the detrimental effect that cadre deployment have on society, and hopefully the ANC has learnt a lesson from what happened in Bloemhof.

Three baby’s dies and more than 20 people were admitted to Hospital after allegedly drinking water that was contaminated in the area in that the municipality neglected to treat the water with the required chlorine process that is needed to purify the water.

The ANC in the North West as a consequence then held the Mayor Rebecca Makadi, responsible for the disaster and recalled her from office.

That is the correct decision that the ANC took, but they should have recalled her earlier after she and her council were accused of corruption, nepotism and poor service delivery.

Cadre deployment is used by the ANC to reward those that are loyal to the cause; to then be appointed in positions at all levels in the society and all institutions of government in the country.

Governments all over the world have this tendency and are known to appoint people in important positions where they agree to the policy of the government of the day, without a shadow of doubt.

The ANC however at all cost appoint loyalist irrespective of them not having the necessary knowledge, experience and education to do the work.

Over the past 20 years this policy has cost South Africa.

Firstly billions of rands lost through corruption, maladministration, mismanagement, nepotism and cronyism;

Secondly service delivery has deteriorated and has come to a standstill in many cases.

In the rural areas the decay of towns are obvious where many Hospitals, Municipalities and Government Institutions are being led by unqualified but loyal ANC cadre’s that is managing into the doldrums.

The retrenchment of Makadi conveys the right message if the ANC is serious to eradicate corruption, mismanagement and maladministration, but it has to also change its policy on cadre deployment drastically.

People should be appointed to positions for which they have the necessary experience and qualifications and capacity, and not because they are loyal to the ANC or any fraction of the ruling party alliances.
