Oudtshoorn. 8 February 2012. 07h15. This is a laconic report. Curt, even. Brusque.
The 2008-IQMS (Integrated Quality Management System) identifies a maintenance backlog of R63,000,000. That’s sixty three million Rand – since 2002.
At the time of considering the report Council heard that R10.8m was required every year to maintain Oudtshoorn’s infrastructure.
Even our Executive Embarrassment, Gordon April, with his grade 6 math, can make the sum: Oudtshoon is currently some R95,000,000 behind in infrastructure maintenance.
The 2008 IQMS served before Council – and nothing was done to implement it!
Surprised at potholes, bursting water pipes, and power failures? Concerned about sewerage?
Oudtshoorn’s pathetic government, since way back when, when dada lost his footing on the proverbial charabanc, is entirely to blame: ANC; NNP (remember them – the “New National Party”); ID; DA…
Council is obviously unable to effect even the most basic functions of local government.
Under such circumstances, the Provincial ANC leadership forced the appointment, against even the better judgement of any number of ANC Councillors, of Zukiswa Ntile as Director Technical Services.
Sporting a mere B.Tech qualification, obtained at what was known as the P.E. Tech, Ntile’s experience amounts to 24 months as Technical Manager/Director of Ikwezi – the metropolis of Jansenville, whence our new MM, Thandekile Mnyimba hails; and 19 months as Director Technical Services at Sundays River; and 19 months in a similar position in Eden – where she was lucky to have three excellent adjudants – Norman Angel, Hans Ottervanger, and Japie Strydom…
When OO called Ntile on Monday about Park Rd, her main concern was about how OO got her cell number.
Ye gods of all pantheons, help us!
