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.

  1. Met genoeg geld in die regte hande kan enigiets gebeur. Even the top dogs will be and are tempted. Corruption is a disease affecting all levels of society no matter what political party. People have pensions to think of as political jobs are never permanent. Kyk net wat die ou NP gemaak het toe hulle saam met hulle sogenaamde “vyande”, die ANC, in die bed geklim het. Job soek, posissie soek , geld soek, te hel met die belasting betalers. Volk en self trots het nie meer `n betekenis vir somige nie.

  2. Dis ‘n snaakse plek om die goed te lees.

    Ek wonder wie die Chris Potgieter ou is. Klink soos ‘n man wat weet van insypel en oorneem. Hy’s reg as hy se ‘n plant maak ‘n goeie convert, maar dan moet hy eers geconvert word. Demascusweg en al daardie dinge. Mynsinsiens kan jy nie convert as jy nie eens bewus is van die plant. Natuurlik as die plant vind dat daar daar wel ‘n corruptist committee of agenda is, dan maak dit sy werk baie maklik want dan speel hy hulle soos ‘n kitaar met 12 snare! En dit is wat besig is om te gebeur.

    Dit is ‘n droewige stand van sake wat by die dag droewiger raak.

    Om te slaag, of om net geloofwaardigheid te behou, moet ‘n politieke party, standvastigheid, eerbaarheid, integriteit en onverskrokke leierskap bewys. Soos die Engelse se, hulle moet “walk the talk.” Op die oomblik is dit nie wat gebeur nie.

    Dit staan soos ‘n paal bo water dat die ANC en COPE besig is om die DA ore aan te sit. Sulke land,regop, harige esel ore. Die DA wil dit bleikbaar nie sien of weet nie, en die wat durf daarop wys dat die koning poedel nakend voor ons staan word summier geskiet. Dit verwyder slegs geraas en nie die probleem nie.

    Die probleem is, soos Factual Fred daarop wys dat in plekke soos Bitou en Eden die ANC die DA ingesypel het en hulle politiekestyl en manier van doen afdwing, selfs sien ons nou tot op die laagste vlak van kaderontplooing – die skepping van poste uit die niet vir spesifieke pelle. ‘n ANC munisipale bestuurder en direkteure in ‘n DA beheerde munisipaliteit. Sleutelposte met betrekking tot die toepassing van DA beleid.

    Net so erg, indien nie erger – ‘n COPE political advisor in ‘n DA burgemeester se kantoor. Dink ‘n bietjie daaraan. ‘n Politiekadviseur. Hy adviseur die Burgemeester en meer as beinvloed sy optredes op alle gebiede. COPE se filosofie en manier van dinge doen was, laas toe ek gekyk het, hemeslbreed verwyder van die DA se posisie. Nou hoe nou? As die politieke adviseur se advies nie geneem word nie het hy mos geen bestaansreg nie. En in hierdie geval as die burgemeester hom daardeur laat lei, dan kan hy nie anders as om aftewyk van sy eie party se beleid nie. ‘n DA burgemeester wat COPE beleid toepas? Wat vir ‘n ding is dit?

    Wat my sleg bekommer en waarvoor ek antwoorde soek is dit. Ons weet almal dat nie een van hierdie poste gevul kan word sonder die goedkeuring van die leiers op politieke vlak nie, en dit is veilig om te aanvaar dat dit is wat gebeur het. ‘n Mens moet ook aanvaar dat die leierskap hulle besluite in die verband noukeurig oorweeg het.

    Hirdie selfde leierskap het die man wat nou die munisipale bestuurder is van Bitou toe hulle hom in Worcester ge erf het geweeg en te lig bevind om DA beleid uit te voer. Trouens, dit is so dat hy geen geheim daarvan gemaak het dat as getroue ANC lid nie DA beleid kan toepas nie. Golden handshake vir hom dus en almal stem saam dis ‘n goeie besluit onder omstandighede. Geen voud daar nie.

    Maar so ‘n jaar of wat later doen die selfde man aansoek vir die pos van munisipale bestuurder in die DA beheerde Bitou munisipaleteit en word daar aangestel. Asseblief. Enigiemand verduidelik vir my hoe werk dit dan nou? Veral in ‘n plek soos Bitou, waar dit duidelik is dat nog die burgemeester nog enige van sy raadslede die vaagste benul of waardering het vir wat presies DA beleid nou eintlik is nie.

    Nie eers een van die DA tak voorsitters kan daarmee help nie. Om van die politieke baas van Bitou, Grant, nie eens te praat nie. Die politieke leierskap kan dus van geen ander plek kom as dierek uit die Kaap uit nie. Van heel bo af. EK VERSTAAAAAN DIT NIE!!!! HELP MY!!!!!

  3. The DA’s inability to take action when it is needed is one of the reasons why I left them.

    I pitty a certain young activist who so believes in the DA that he defends everything about them…….I just pray that his eyes open!

  4. You wont get replies either O!O. They dont talk to OO,they dont talk to their constituents, they dont talk to each other – remember !
    Rumour has it that a reshuffle is perhaps on the cards to have all the ‘mediocre white men” removed as soon as an amicable departure package can be structures. Would be nice hey ? Golden hand shake packages are something of the past, its now called a slap on the back or slap on the wrist package with very little meat on the bone !
