    Service delivery - all the municipalities one by one must be sent to Palesitine where they will see the people who got nothing in their municipalities but come service delivery number one the world over. One incident which I witnessed in 2005 - war planes of Israel shoot, killed, and destroyed homes, cars and what have you. It was around 11 in the morning of that day - around 12 the plane went home finished their work left the carnage to be managed. It took Palestinians young boys in their 15 years and 30 - who many are mayors in that age councilors and municipal works, withing 3 hrs the place was cleared, the dead buried and the rubles cleared - this is service delivery at its best. Its unfortunate taht a person has been looking for work desparately and by luck he/she has been given the work to give out cash to the people, he/she has been given all the necessities ranging from car, fone, nice furniture's and the cash and the people to be served, come the day the person is reluctant to deliver the service he was tasked to - for me she /he deserve jail.

    Klapmuts is a farming area - what services should the municipality deliver there? The roads are excellent, the area is clean, there is electricity, running water etc. I smell the hand of the ANC in this...

    Mr Viljoen: "Cape Winelands is a DA municipality, you can't strike there because it a white government and striking is only acceptable in ANC runned municipalities". Mrs Viljoen: "How can black people march under DA government, its unheard of, they just don't understand, they don't appreciate being ignored. Striking should be done in ANC municipalities exclusively. DA administration is the best in the country and the benchmark for running of municipalities. Van der merwe: Since black people have been ignored in the past, they never striked when black government was in power here so now they want services from our DA, that is just crazy, they should go to Lutuli or Union buldings and cry to Zuma. Mr Viljoen: Black people don't pay tax, they don't want to work, they just want to get get get, that just not on. Mrs Viljoen: Only our housekeeper Tobeka understands, is it correct Tobeka. Thobeka: Ndiyeke sidenge somlungu, ezizinto zithandi apartheid. Ndobahlisa mna belibele kukugxeka yonke into eyenzwa ngumntu omnyama kodwa bayawuncoma umsebenzi wam. Iziziphuku-phuku, kanye lo Mrs Viljoen, atsho ngenwele ezixhwithekileyo ngathi nguZille, uMr Viljoen atsho ngobaliZuma, wayezifunela nalapha kum, nxa shini. Mrs Viljoen: Tobeka, I can understand, what are you saying Thobeka: Sorry Madam, was saying that you are right, Mrs Viljoen is good like Zille, Mr Viljoen is right that Zuma is not good madam, Mrs Viljoen: Van Der Merwe, I told that Tobeka is the only good black.
