Oudtshoorn. 26 Julie 2012. 17h20. ANC councillors Erik Ngalo (Ward 8) and Nondumiso Gunguluza (Ward 4) abstained in the critical vote this afternoon to begin to restore good order and responsible governance in Oudtshoorn.
Immense pressure was heaped on Gunguluza and Ngalo. After the vote of 12 – 11 went down, the Speaker, Johannes Stoffels (NPP) allowed a caucus (!) – in flagrant disregard of the Order Rules. Still the cadres could not sway Gunguluza and Ngalo.
Gunguluza and Ngalo are not deserting the ANC; Gunguluza and Ngalo have simply decided to serve their conscience; to serve the people of Oudtshoorn!
This is much, much more than anything any other Councillor, from both sides of the chamber, has done to date!
Disciplinary measures against the two are a virtual certainty. OO salutes their integrity: Well done, Nondumiso Gunguluza and Erik Ngalo! Slainte mhath!
Here is the emphatic motion accepted by the Oudtshoorn Council this afternoon – drafted by the razor sharp Constituency Chair, Hannes Barnard:
Slainte mhath… Hoe the Scots say “Cheers”. You’d not expect a Baird to say it any other way, would you!? (Pronounced Slantchervar.)
