New broom?

07 July 2014, 13:52


No sooner had the mayor from Elias Motsoaledi Local Council, been recalled from office and the new incumbent ‘forces down his logistics and administration’ onto council, in most cases contradictory to standing orders and or regulations that prevails.

The supply chain management is being reshuffled, the structure and logistics of the bid committee, the tender committee and all of its mandated specifications amended and or altered.

It seems that council is not only aware of the threat that the EFF holds in the area, but that it is taking all of the precautions that it can think about to prevent a situation where it would be losing control.

In its reshuffling and or amendment of procedures, conflict of interest appears to be irrelevant, yet such involvement by councilors in the business of the council in which they serve is totally unacceptable and contradictory to regulations.

Political agendas and even personal funding of causes, is relevant and being the order of the day. The race of becoming the Chief Whip in the Council playing a prominent and definite role in all of the decisions and actions taken of late, and in most instances rules in that regard ignored.

During February 2014 in a meeting with CoGSTA is being ruled that no decision would be made within the ambit of council, without having consulted and or interacted with the Executive of the Council, yet as it stands now such ruling and decision taken are being ignored and or acted in without due diligence and or good governance and accountability that should be the fore.

All of these actions is a clear picture of how relevant the lack of support for the ruling party is as it stands at the moment, and it therefore being so desperate to cling to its power of the past 20 years that it in the process is even prepared to waive on good governance, accountability and the mandate to deliver on service, all at the cost of personal enrichment.

A desperate and sad state of affairs to say the least!

Ban Hunting Now!

This is far too emotional an issue, it should be dealt with realistically. There are risks to conservation if hunting is banned ... like it or not. Read more...
