How witless can a Municipal Council be!?

Oudtshoorn. 26 July 2012. 06h25. Believe this if you can: The Bitou Council has appointed a three member multy party task team to determine the source of OO’s information on Mayor Memory Booysen’s sabotaging of the appointment of Grant Easton as Municipal Manager, and Booysen’s machination to rescind charges against the Director Community Services Monde Stratu.
This organisational stupidity obliterates OO’s last velleity of respect for the Democratic Alliance, that brute political force surfing an ABA tsunami – Anything But the ANC.
Why not appoint a task team to investigate why the Mayor misrepresented Council’s offer to Easton?
Why don’t you tell us, Helen (Zille, DA Leader)? Donald (Grant, DA MP)? Theuns (Botha, DA Western Cape Leader)? Anton (Bredell, DA Western cape Secretary)?
Why not appoint a task team to investigate why the Mayor forced the scrapping of five serious charges of misconduct against Stratu – in the face of the MM’s opinion that the decision to vacate would be illegal?
Why don’t you tell us, Helen? Donald? Theuns? Anton?
There is no allegation of false reporting, mind. And there can not possibly be such accusation because the OO story is accurate.
Therefore one is virtually obliged to conclude that the Bitou Council does not want its constituents to know what Councillors are up to. The Bitou Council is affronted because its constituents are now privy to its rogueries and prevarications.
Any such Council should resign.
Personally, I can’t wait for Messrs Gcbayi, Van Ryhner; and De Waal to approach me! It’s gonna be such fun guiding the delegation up some random bosky common orbit!
Or is the triumvirate of thickos to conclude without approaching the receiver of the so-called leaked information?
Nothing was “leaked”, dammit! I just did my inveterate investigative job. Can’t Helen and Theuns and Anton and their ilk just accept that they can not get one by OO?
