Limpopo rewarding corruption - Samwu

2010-11-15 20:05

Polokwane - The Limpopo government is rewarding corrupt municipal managers with a "golden handshake", the SA Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) in the province said on Monday.

"Samwu... has been disturbed by the redeployment of corrupt municipal managers from one municipality to the other, while ignoring the blaring corrupt activities these managers are involved in," said spokesperson Tahir Sema in a statement.

"Some of these managers who were involved in corrupt activities have been transferred to municipalities with a much larger budget than the ones they left."

The union said the provincial government continued to ignore allegations of corruption in Musina, Vhembe, Tzaneen, Molemole, Phalaborwa and Sekhukhune.

Sema said Samwu and Cosatu would ensure that the allegations were investigated and the people involved be charged.

The provincial arm of the union would "resist and protest" at municipalities where corrupt managers were being deployed, he said.

    I am from Limpopo and I don't know how my fellow citizens continue to support what is happening there. The core is rotten and I am certain this represent the common situation within ANC. I have been suprised to see people being employed in Vhembe District while being suspended from another municipality within the province. Its time people think and stop living in a black dream... Disgusted

    this is the new "justice" system in a "democratic" South Africa - no wonder BEE and Affirmative action will be around for another 20 years (it is only their to ensure selfenrichment of a few). I pity the rest of South Africa (black and white) - i am out of here in three weeks (my childrens future comes first).

    All municipal managers, mayors and town executives should be elected by the voters in their constituencies. They should not be appointed by any particular party. The party can nominate the people they deem fit for the position, but the final say must lie with the voters. That way, they all need to "stay in line" in order to be re-elected for another term.
