March against manager with four wives

2009-11-04 00:00

COMMUNITY members at Indaka Local Municipality near Ladysmith marched to the municipal buildings to stop a council meeting scheduled for yesterday morning.

According to community member Thulani Kheswa, the meeting was called to reinstate suspended municipal manager Milton Mbhele.

Mbhele was suspended by the councillors in September. He only found out about his suspension when he came back from honeymoon after his marriage to four women at one wedding.

Kheswa said the residents do not want Mbhele as a manager because of the lack of service delivery, financial mismanagement and the decaying state of the municipal buildings.

“The council seeks to reinstate Mbhele following a directive from the IFP’s political oversight committee that proper procedures were not followed when he was suspended,” said Kheswa.

Acting municipal manager Scelo Maphanga confirmed there was a march and said the council meeting was postponed.
