Dysfunctionality the route of all failures!

21 June 2014, 19:15

Government policy and especially the policy of cadre deployment into positions of power within the sphere of Municipalities, has had disastrous effects on service delivery to but say the least.

In the 20 years of democracy we have seen, witnessed all of the incapacities that those unqualified, uneducated, inexperienced people whom have been deployed into the positions, and how they have ruined whatever was still there, to absolutely nothing.

And to make it worse, those ones that were deployed to fulfill a mandate that is synergy to the position that they are being deployed into, comes with a very healthy and substantial pay package, and at the end of the day, service delivery is sacrificed in that the municipality are paying more and more on remuneration, perks and benefits, than what is being spent on service delivery and or infrastructure development.

Evidence of these inequalities and in-balances are evident when advertisements are placed in the media to fill vacant positions and then to see that incumbents, whom only have to have a grade 12 qualification, are actually being paid close on R 1,0 million per year! This is ludicrous and amounts to mismanagement and maladministration to say but the least.

The first priority of local, district councils should be vested in infrastructure development which through decay and a lack of maintenance on it, has resulted in the collapse of infrastructure, and leading to protests marches, in some cases even violent in nature.

To blame the collapse of infrastructure on the previous policy of ‘apartheid’ is but ridiculous, as anything had to be maintained and has a specific life cycle, but through proper maintenance, the life span can be extended.

It is like a car – you can’t just drive it, you have to service and maintain it – so is that concept to difficult to understand that you have failed to maintain something, admit to your failure, than to blame something that is totally irrelevant.

Government in all of its propaganda, stress that it would be prioritizing on service delivery, yet one can be assured of the fact that those promises will remain as exactly that.

The past 20 years has been evidence to the fact that nothing is ever driven to functionality and or good administration and governance being prevalent for the benefit of the people.
