Misuse of municipal resources

03 May 2016, 07:48  - Karishma.Rampersadh

AT 7.30 pm on April 15, an Mpofana municipal employee was seen and heard driving through Tendele village loud-haling an invitation to the community to attend a meeting at Dabulamanzi Combined School the following day at 10 am, to be introduced to the candidate for the local government elections on August 3.

As a DA candidate in the election, I was not informed of this meeting, so I understand it to be an ANC meeting to be held at a school.

After 22 years of rule, the ANC continues to flaunt legislation by using municipal property for political party purposes.

In the interest of clean governance and councillors’ oversight responsibilities, I have requested the municipal manager to investigate and report back to me as to who authorised this municipal employee to use a municipal vehicle for political party purposes.

Will the employee be claiming and be paid overtime at ratepayers’ expense and is it acceptable for a school to be used for a political activity?

To date, no answer has been received from the municipal manager.
