SACP targets Midvaal

2011-11-13 19:11

Johannesburg - A programme to deal with corruption and mismanagement of resources in the Midvaal municipality is being formulated, the SA Communist Party (SACP) in Gauteng said on Sunday.

"Our programme of action will focus on service delivery, and also to ensure that criminal action is taken against any person involved in corruption and maladministration," said Jacob Mamabolo, acting provincial secretary.

He said the SACP would start consultation processes with their local structures in Midvaal, as well as alliance partners at a provincial level.

The SACP is in alliance with the ruling ANC and union federation Cosatu. The programme of action was expected to be finalised at the provincial executive committee on November 24.

"We will ensure a sustained action against the municipality to ensure that the working class in Midvaal is vigilant and consistent, until the next round of local government elections, where we will certainly ensure the ANC rules the municipality."

He said Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report on Midvaal pointed to acts of financial maladministration despite the "misguided and false view" that Midvaal was the best run municipality in Gauteng.

"The issues raised by the report are very serious as they expose corruption with regard to procurement processes in the municipality," he said.

Madonsela released a scathing report on the Midvaal municipality, saying it had breached financial and administrative policies.

She said the municipality, which is the only one run by the DA in Gauteng, violated the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework.

This was because it had for the past 30 years retained the same legal firm without going through proper procedures.

Leading to the May 18 municipal election, the party had proudly canvassed Midvaal and Cape Town as examples of the best DA-led municipalities.
