Oudtshoorn. 26 June 2012. 06h30. What of the NPP’s National Executive decision to abandon the ruling Oudtshoorn coalition!?
Why are we waiting!?
If NPP President Badih Chaaban is so committed to “clean government”, why are we not seeing the Speaker call a Special Council Meeting to at least vote down the Executive Mayor’s imbecilic decision to appeal the Paulse verdict declaring the appointment of Thandekile Mnyimba null and void!?
If NPP President Badih Chaaban is so committed to “clean government”, why are we not seeing motions of no confidence in the incompetent Mayor and his deputy?
If NPP President Badih Chaaban is so committed to “clean government”, why are we not seeing preparations to replace the management dunces on the Mayco!?
Is the NPP merely yanking Oudtshoorn’s chain!?
While the High Court found Mnyimba unqualified to be MM, he still roams the halls of Verwoerd Square for reasons obvious only to the caders and their so-called “advisors”.
Yesterday there were rumblings that Mnyimba was to be paid by die Council for June – if not as MM, based on some perverted appeal to be filed with the High Court, then as “consultant”.
For what “advice”, pray, should ratepayers cough up from a man unqualified to be MM!? Does Mnyimba now advise on manuel labour!? He is obviously not qualified to advise on managerial matters!
Nic Barrow, that indefatigable warrior against corruption, fired off a few hard hitting (parental guidance advised) sms’s to the cadres yesterday afternoon:
Deon Lott, ek verneem jy het opdrag gegee om Mnyimba se salaris te betaal. As jy Mnyimba se salaris betaal gaan jy kak. Die geld sal van jou en jou kollegas en ANC-raadslede verhaal word.
Thandekile Mnyimba, if you accept and spend an Oudtshoorn Municipality salary payment it will amount to theft as you have never been in the employ of the Oudtshoorn Municipality, and you will shit bricks.
These messages follow on two sent on June 9 and 11:
Councillors and functionaries, you will be held PERSONALLY liable for any and all payments to Mnyimba from 1 June. Should you be complicit in any such payment, a charge of theft will be laid against you.
Daar is geen meriete in Mnyimba se aanstelling nie – per uitspraak! Daar is nog minder meriete in ‘n appèl. Enigiemand aandadig aan die appèlkoste sak in sy/haar persoonlike hoedanigheid aanspreeklik gehou word vir vrugtelose uitgawes.
So, Mr President Chaaban and leaders collective of the NPP: It’s time to put your money where your mouth is, or be damned to political obscurity.
If Chaaban and the NPP reneges on the NEC decision to abandon the incompetent Coalition, Chaaban and the NPP will lose its very last vestige of credibility.
Why are we waiting!?
Chaaban should wait not too long… The cost of Mnyimba’s appointment and short tenure will soon be recovered from the 13 Councillors who installed the man from Jansenville. One of the 13 is the NPP Member, Johannes Stoffels.
It appears that over and above Chaaban’s committment to clean government, some financial implications are also to be considered…
