Gauteng ANC backs Masondo

2010-08-25 12:28
Johannesburg – The ANC in Gauteng said on Wednesday it backed Johannesburg mayor Amos Masondo and then it announced the dissolution of the Regional Executive Council (REC).

"The ANC Gauteng provincial council has taken a firm decision to dissolve the Johannesburg regional executive committee," said provincial secretary David Makhura at a press briefing in Johannesburg.

Makhura said that the REC was ridden with divisions and was dysfunctional.

"As part of the REC descending into total madness they wanted to recall the mayor," said Makhura.

Makhura also said the REC had failed to convene meetings and was pre-occupied with deployments.

"If you are aligned to the right people you can do anything you want. People disrupt meetings and rent a mob," said Makhura.

The Star newspaper reported on Wednesday the decision to suspend Masondo and city manager Mavela Dlamini, and to dissolve the REC was prompted by an internal report by an ANC task team on financial problems and alleged financial mismanagement in several infrastructural projects in the city.
