Absent officials not off the hook

2010-11-12 00:00

COUNCILLORS who embarrassed the Msunduzi Municipality by failing to attend an oversight visit by a national parliamentary delegation at the Winston Churchill Theatre on Tuesday will not be let off the hook.

Speaking to The Witness yesterday, council speaker Babu Baijoo said committee officers from the parliamentary delegation were the ones who handled the registration process and he is still waiting for them to fax him the names of the councillors who had signed.

Baijoo said that “apparently a few apologies were received” but he can only act after he has received the awaited register.

“I will write to each of those who were not present.”

When The Witness spoke to him later, Baijoo said he was not in his office but he expected that the register would have been faxed later yesterday.

At an ANC caucus meeting on Wednesday, Baijoo said he informed councillors that those who did not attend Tuesday’s proceedings will have to write letters of apology.
