Donand#039;t compromise access to swimming facilities

2015-05-20 06:00

THE Concerned Swimming Fraternity (CSF) has attempted for some time to get answers to our concerns on the condition of Buchan Street so as to ensure swimming continues in winter.

We were forwarded a document and instructed to complete it in terms of Section 18(1) in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act No 2/2000 for a reply to our inquiry.

It is the firm stance of the CSF that the ANC-led municipality’s municipal manager and the community services head are hell-bent on frustrating us from playing the watch-dog role and holding those basking in paradise in the parks department accountable.

Access to everyday information (a simple yes or no) can never fall under the Promotion of Access to Information Act No 2/2000.

When this happens then the architects in the city hall consider themselves bigger than our Constitution.

Such folk need to be schooled on the basics of the Constitution. Swimming is a life skill that every human being must learn - access to swimming facilities cannot be compromised.
