Emfuleni Local Municipality under administration way overdue

06 June 2018, 11:30

I live in the Emfuleni municipal area and can only say it is about time it was put under administration.

We have for the past 15 odd years been cursed with shoddy management, corruption and complete disregard for the ratepayers who actually pay municipal salaries. Mayor Jacob Khawe came with all the usual promises and then we were back to square one.

This bankrupt municipality, that has no money to fill refuse trucks, pay arrear water and electricity or fix streets, are requesting tenders to host a SOMA at a cost of, conservatively speaking, R1,2m. Then the mayor wanted to appoint four additional staff members in his office (one to write his speeches), when this municipality is already creaking under superfluous management who sit on their morning glories and eat KFC and run up accounts on their credit cards.

The previous illustrious incumbent had to resign for 'grooming of a minor'. Very nice people. The very, very tired ratepayers sincerely hope that administration will at least be managed in an honest and open manner and that all the dead wood is floated out as soon as possible.

I wish you luck.
