Oudtshoorn. 9 July 2012. 15h40. OO has learned on impeccable authority that the Oudtshoorn Council has already paid R500,000 in legal costs defending its ludicrous appointment of Thandekile Mnyimba as Municipal Manager.
Senior advocate Ismail Jamie was paid R180,000.
Junior Counsel Shaheed Patel was paid R220,000. Patel is currently being investigated by the George Council for billing discrepancies relating to bills rendered to George and Oudtshoorn. OO is in possession of a 193-page report in the matter, dated November 12, 2011.
Attorney Hardy Mills was paid R100,000.
OO estimates Allen Paulse’s cost to date at R375,000, given that Paulse did not instruct Senior Counsel.
Council lost the case against Allen Paulse and the Minister of Local Government and is therefore due to settle Paulse’s costs and the Minister’s cost if Council is not granted leave to appeal, or looses the appeal.
Mnyimba is not qualified to be Oudtshoorn’s Municipal Manager. Yet the ANC cabal spent R500,000 in a futile attempt to justify its cadre deployment and is committing even more ratepayer money appealing the verdict that Mnyimba is not qualified to be the MM!
Somebody must stop these irrational incompetents!
