No intervention from Dube-Ncube

26 May 2016, 07:21  - Joyce.Jagaroo

TOGETHER with the DA, I have persistently called on Cogta’s MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube to intervene in the current crisis unfolding in the ANC-run Msunduzi Municipality.

All pleas have fallen on deaf ears. The suspension of the municipality’s municipal manager, Mxolisi Nkosi, and the haphazard way acting municipal managers were appointed in Nkosi’s place, gave a new meaning to respect for basic labour legislation. Now, it emerges that both Boniwe Zulu and Dr Ray Ngcobo are performing far below acceptable standards and have been “ordered” to attend developmental programmes, (The Witness, May 23). No deputy municipal manager qualifies for a bonus; however, the very same managers were demanding extremely high salary increases.

Now, the provincial Treasury’s Belinda Scott and uMgungundlovu District Mayor Yusuf Bhamjee are embarking on a flame tour to showcase local government achievements, despite many of the seven municipalities experiencing serious violent service-delivery protests. The people on the ground have spoken and Dube-Ncube knows this best.

Have the DA’s pleas fallen on deaf ears or has Dube-Ncube deliberately ignored the chaos in our municipality to show her support to the right faction in the ANC? The latter seems realistic, for in all the hiring and firing at provincial level, she is in the comfort zone.

Again, it is exposed that party and factionalism are priorities for the ANC, not the people and our city.
