Parking systemwas ‘bulldozed through’

10 May 2016, 07:11  - Joyce.Jagaroo

EVIDENTLY, the ANC-led municipality has a new spokesperson in Priscilla Padayachee Naidoo (The Witness, May 6).

The Panzascore parking system was unanimously supported by ANC councillors. Padayachee Naidoo’s comments confirm the ANC does not serve in the best interests of all our people, but some tenderpreneurs.

We are still in a democracy, but the bulldozing of the parking system smells of authoritarianism. The project was intended to benefit the poor, but does not do so.

We respect the rule of law, hence the suggestion that the council should roll out the system and let the first half-hour be free. This caters for those who abuse the parking to be charged.

The system, introduced in 2013, is estimated to rake in R75 million by the end of the current year. How much will Msunduzi get of these millions?

Despite an ailing economy, unemployment and widespread poverty, the ANC-led municipality imposes a system in selected areas, not excluding parking outside places of worship and schools.

Your correspondent is obviously ignorant of the issues surrounding paid parking. Ratepayers do not expect the city to grow without economic development.

The Raisethorpe business hub contributes to the city’s coffers and its concerns are shrugged off.

All ANC councillors are welcome to conduct an inspection in loco with me and engage with business and residents, to hear their concerns.

We must respect the pockets of the people and assist rather than impose.
