Objection to three candidates on party list

27 March 2014, 21:45

Dear Chairperson

RE:  OBJECTION ON AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS (ANC) 2014 NATIONAL AND PROVINCIAL PARTY LIST

In terms of Section 30 of the Electoral Act (Ac 73 of 1998), I hereby lodge an objection on three candidates that appear on the party list of African national congress (ANC).

 There is a possibility that these three candidates might go to parliament should ANC do well in the next coming 07th May 2014 elections. Parliament is a place where the members of Parliament look after our interests as the citizens of this beloved country, guided by our constitution.

It is my view that the candidates that I am about to present to you proved beyond reasonable doubt that they do not have the best interest of the South African people at heart. These candidates have been implicated in different financial misconducts, as such they cannot be trusted to hold public office.

We live in a country were poverty is still a major challenge, people are still staying in sharks, lack of water in most of our rural communities and high unemployment rate to mention few. In order to remedy some of these challenges, we need people who hold public office to have the best interest of people at heart.

Allow me to introduce to you;

1.       Former Communications Minister Dina Deliwe Pule – Order no: 70

-          She was found to have persistently lied and also with unethical conduct by our Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

-          On Public Protector’s report, she was also found to have persistently misled our parliament.

-          In general, Thuli Madonsela found Dina Pule’s actions to be unlawful

In parliament we need people who can represent us, if Dina Pule has misled our August house before, what can possibly stop her from doing it again.

2.       Former Gauteng Housing MEC Humphrey Mmemezi – Order no: 111

-          Mr voluntarily resigned as MEC of housing in Gauteng after he was accused of buying a painting using a government credit card and inflating salary of his daughter while he was HR manager with the Mogale City municipality.

-          He also used public funds to build a wall and upgrade security systems at his private residence while in office.

-          Mr Terence Nombembe (Auditor General) established that the upgrade to Mmemezi's home did not comply with government's supply chain guidelines.

The fact the Mr Mmemezi voluntarily might have indicated that he had a guilty conscience hence if he was not guilty of any wrong doing, he would not have religuished his position.  Mr Mmemezi’s return to public office will be a slap to the unemployed and our poverty stricken communities who continues to suffer while public money is being spent on less important staff like “paintings”.

3.       Former ANCYL treasurer Puleng Peter Mabe – Order no: 53

-          Mr Pule Mabe was arrested for theft,  fraud and money laundering

-          It is alleged that Mr Mabe benefited from funds which were solicited from South African Social Security ( Sassa) .

-          He is currently on R10 000 bail

It is a fair judgment that people who hold public office should be clean of any wrong doings. As a member of the public and a concerned citizen, I take Mr Mabe’s allegations very serious considering the government department which money was allegedly taken from.  South African Social Security (Sassa), plays a very important role in making sure that our elders, children and whoever receives foster care grant gets food on the table.  I would suggest that Mr Mabe’s name should be cleared first before he would consider holding public officer.

Yours truly

Daniel Ralefatane
