Are Eden voters failed by the DA?
No holds barred in your face factual reporting
even of what you may not realise you should want to know
Your advertising is only as good as the people who see it – repeatedly!
You want to do business with O!O readers – people with money and control of corporate budgets.
And you want to reach them behind their desks, making decisions!
Oudtshoorn. 7 February 2013. 09h05. Some comments on David Bullard’s Politicsweb column today serve to indicate that the O!O take on probable ANC control of the DA Eden and Bitou councils is uncomfortably valid…
rumours writes: interesting rumour doing the rounds – the anc have a few plants inside the da. not the first time this would have happened in political parties in the world but expect more trouble for those ladies and gentlemen in the western cape colony and what about a reshuffle of the mec’s, is that a rumour that is false then.
Chris Potgieter replies: Interesting rumour doing the rounds. The ‘plants’ always make the best converts. They are the ones bringing in the new members because they can testify with a clear conscience that no “Corruptist” committee exists within the DA. We all know Luthuli House deployed spin doctors’ writing styles so please get a life ‘rumours’.
Then Factual Fred weighs in: No rumour, Rumours. That is a rock solid fact. While Ehrenreich distracts them and Theuns Botha sleeps with “Operation Reclaim” documents under his mattress, the ANC are white anting the DA from the ground up, putting their people in place and purging the party of its true believers.
It is no rumour brother, it is a FACT. Take a look at what happened in Plett. They have what is undeniably an ANC controlled Mayor. An ANC Municipal Manager, and an ANC Director Corporate Services. The ANC Director Strategic Services was saved from dismissal when the DA council, at the last minute, unlawfully and illegally intervened, saving him from facing very, very serious disciplinary charges.
Political leadership in Plett is MEC Donald Grant. Under his blundering and disinterested leadership, the WC DA leader, Theuns Botha and Federal Chairman, James Selfe, purged the guy who had single handedly brought down the ANC in Plett and given it on a plate to the DA and replaced him with another ANC ghost.
The so-called DA council in Plett is left without a single experienced DA councillor and its ANC mayor in a tattered DA Tshirt runs rampant.
DA Eden District Council in George is going the same way.
HARD FACTS the DA chooses to ignore.
Reshuffle the WC cabinet? That should have happened 2 years ago.
The party leadership needs replacement not just reshuffling.
O!O has had no reply from Ivan Meyer, Mosiuoa Lekota, or Wayne Craig on yesterday’s letters.
