Mayoral recalls

27 June 2014, 07:44


OF late four mayors and or deputy mayors within the Limpopo Province have been recalled from duty by the ANC apparently on the basis of their support to either Motlanthe and or Julius Malema in previous times.

The real reason behind them being recalled, being absent in the media briefing being given by the party at the announcement of the recall, with the usual ‘dished up reasons which is far removed from the truth of the reason’ - Something that has become the norm rather than the exception within the ranks of the ANC.

The ANC has according to its election manifesto a motto to extend and improve on its service delivery mandate in these five years that it won thanks to voters in the country that once again trusted and believed them to do exactly that during their election campaign of late.

If in any way the four mayors were recalled as they failed the people of the respective areas on service delivery then one can safely ask why the mayors of the other 283 municipalities in the country were not recalled, as there is hardly one council, district council and or metropolitan council where service delivery has actually happened in terms of the mandate of the ruling party. Protests, in some cases even violent protests in nature, being evidentiary of the fact on how the ANC failed the people on service delivery which speaks for itself.

This recall is saturated with political undertones and affiliation and more questions than answer being the order of the day.

Defectors from the ANC that crossed floor and joined COPE, and now defected from COPE and returning to the ANC, are now conveniently deployed as mayors to these councils where mayor have been recalled, such as the Elias Motsoaledi Local Council, where the Honourable Wendy Matemane, was recalled and replaced with a defector who now returned to the ambit of the ruling party.

Within Limpopo Province a political party was formed from defectors aptly called the Mpumalanga Party, who was formed in view of dissatisfaction about ANC governance, management and in view of the demarcation which was a sensitive matter at the time, but it seems that if they would elect to be reintegrated into or rejoin the ANC they would be handsomely rewarded and or guaranteed, (mayoral positions) if the status quo of what transpired in the ambit of the Elias Motsoaledi Local Council is anything to go by.
