Time for abold move in municipality

19 April 2016, 10:20  - Joyce.Jagaroo

IN recent weeks, alleged maladministration has seen Msunduzi Municipality senior officials being suspended, (The Witness, April 11).

The impact of this has a negative influence on the management of the city’s affairs to the detriment of ratepayers. The MEC for Cogta, Nomusa Dube, informed the city of her investigation into the affairs of the municipality, the SIU swooped on the city, then the R8,5 million overpayment to a local security company was exposed.

In the latest saga, the acting municipal manager, Boniwe Zulu, has allegedly moved to suspend the internal audit head. This involved driving through the streets and blocking the vehicle of Petrus Mahlaba who refused to accept the suspension letter in traffic.

Dube initiated the investigation that influenced the suspension of Mxolisi Nkosi.

Ratepayers are further compromised by the internal divisions and conspicuous factionalism within the ANC, which holds the majority seats in this struggling municipality.

It is now time for Dube to take the bold move, ahead of safeguarding cadres, and institute a full-scale official inquiry into the plagued municipality.

Cadres and shenanigans need not be protected any longer at the expense of dutiful ratepayers who are severely compromised by poor service delivery.
