Oudtshoorn. 17 Januarie 2012. 09h00. OO het vanoggend die munisipale bestuurder, Thandekile Mnyimba, gevra om die burgemeesterskomiteee se toewysing van R50,000 (met ‘n moontlike addisionele R10,000) aan die Mighty Word Conference te verduidelik.

Die Wes-Kaapse minister van plaaslike regering, Anton Bredell, is oor die brief ingelig.

Bredell het nog op géén brief van OO oor die wanadministrasie op Verwoerdplein gereageer nie. ‘n Verrassing wag op Bredell.

Hier is die tekste…

Die minister van plaaslike regering
Mr Anton Bredell
Wes-Kaap

Anton

Die aangehegde brief aan die munisipale bestuurder van Oudtshoorn verwys.

Ek herinner jou dat jy ‘n verpligting het itv a106 van die munisipale stelselswet om ongerymdhede soos wat in die brief beskryf word te ondersoek.

Ek verneem spoedeisend van jou watter stappe jy doen om wanadministrasie op Oudtshoorn in die algemeen; en die finansiële ondersteuning van die “Mighty Word Conference” in die besonder, aan te spreek.

Hier is die brief aan die munisipale bestuurder, met afskrifte aan Gordon April; Nondumiso Gunguluza; Chris MacPherson; Velancio Donson; en Johannes Stoffels.

The Municipal Manager
Mr Thandekile Mnyimba
Oudtshoorn

Dear Mr Mnyimba

Funds transferred to organisations and bodies outside of government is regulated in terms of s67 of the MFMA, which determines as follows:

67. (1) Before transferring funds of the municipality to an organisation or body
outside any sphere of government otherwise than in compliance with a commercial or
other business transaction, the accounting officer must be satisfied that the organisation
or body—
(a) has the capacity and has agreed—
(i) to comply with any agreement with the municipality;
(ii) for the period of the agreement to comply with all reporting, financial
management and auditing requirements as may be stipulated in the
agreement;
(iii) to report at least monthly to the accounting officer on actual expenditure
against such transfer; and
(iv) to submit its audited financial statements for its financial year to the
accounting officer promptly;
(b) implements effective, efficient and transparent financial management and
internal control systems to guard against fraud, theft and financial mismanagement;
and
(c) has in respect of previous similar transfers complied with all the requirements
of this section.
(2) If there has been a failure by an organisation or body to comply with the
requirements of subsection (1) in respect of a previous transfer, the municipality may
despite subsection (1)(c) make a further transfer to that organisation or body provided
that—
(a) subsection (1)(a) and (b) is complied with; and
(b) the relevant provincial treasury has approved the transfer.
(3) The accounting officer must through contractual and other appropriate mechanisms
enforce compliance with subsection (1).
(4) Subsection (1)(a) does not apply to an organisation or body serving the poor or
used by government as an agency to serve the poor, provided—
(a) that the transfer does not exceed a prescribed limit; and
(b) that the accounting officer—
(i) takes all reasonable steps to ensure that the targeted beneficiaries receive
the benefit of the transferred funds; and
(ii) certifies to the Auditor-General that compliance by that organisation or
body with subsection (1)(a) is uneconomical or unreasonable.

Please indicate, expeditiously and by return email, in terms of which policy and legislative provision the payment to the “Mighty Word Conference” was made. S67 clearly does not allow for such payment.

I refer you to s29(3) and monish you that a s32 investigation will be launched againt you.

One thought on “Mnyimba moet sê oor Mighty Word Conference

  1. Mr Thandekile Mnyimba is duielik nog “groen” maar n spoedige antwoord van hom sal baie waardeer en vereis word
    Wat my egter meer verontrus is die gedurige stilswye van Minister Bredell oor verklaarde OO en SOE uitbuitings op Oudshoorn. As Minister is hy direk aan Zille en die publiek tov munisipale en Provinsiale regulasies, VERANTWOORDELIK !!
    Wat my verbyster is sy gedurige ontwyking en of stilswye waardeur hy homself reelmatig in die publieke oog so aanhoudend self slaan met n plank.

    Tyd dat dit verder geneem moet word. Niks erger as iemand wat net nie WIL HOOR nie en dan nog deur ons belastinggelde onderhou word vir sy klaarbleiklike “onvermoe” !

    Hou ons op hoogte asb OO !!
