Municipal mystery extends

2015-11-11 06:00

Sir, IN response to your article last week about the purchase of equipment worth R22 million by the municipality, my take is that it is a wasteful and unnecessary expense which does not achieve anything in service delivery for the people.

It is even more shocking that no one is accountable for this purchase. Surely the MM and CFO (previous) were, and are, fully aware of the order and delivery as I understand that order numbersm etc. are essential with any purchase, and the MM is the accounting officer.

Let us open our eyes and see that Umvoti Municipality is careless about service delivery­. but cares about looking after officials­, employees and councillor's life-styles rather than communities.
