Things are bound to get worse before it gets better

Oudtshoorn. 22 February 2013. 11h00. So Wessie van der Westhuizen has formally lodged his written submission to the ENS findings with the speaker’s office.
What will the DA do?
Yes, the Dee-Ay.
The submission has been sent to Theuns Botha, the DA Western Cape deputy leader and Eden constituency head… And DA leader of government business.
The submission has not (formally) been sent to Anton Bredell, the provincial minister of local government. If Bredell does see the submission, it will probably be as Western Cape party secretary… And he will in any event, more likely than not, do nothing, as a matter of course.
This is a political scheme, my longsuffering readers; it is not an excercise in (elusive) clean government.
If the Eden fiasco was managed as a “government” issue, and not a “political” issue, Botha would not have received a copy of either the ENS report, nor the mayor’s responding submission, before council considered the matter!
But ya’all will recall that O!O reported on February 8 already that the premier’s consultant, Koos Cilliers, had visited Eden with a view, in O!O’s humble opinion (which is seldom, if ever, wrong) of diverting attention away from Van der Westhuizen in order to pave the way for no action against Helen Zille’s ex ID coloured poster boy.
Ag nee wat – moet nou nie met daai attitude opdaag nie: dis nié ‘n “rassistiese” uitspraak nie; kóm nou!
One of my correspondends tweeted yesterday: “People hardly understand what racist means. They just know to shout it aloud when they don’t like something!”
The DA can’t afford to get rid of Wessie van der Westhuizen.

Follow the money.
Allus follow the money.
The ID – remember the ID? That bankrupt party of Patricia de Lille that the DA bought for top voter dollar and received nuttin’ in return but useless candidates?
The ID owes much. And the ID is due to de-register soon. But it can’t dissolve with outstanding debt.
So… To fund the creditor demands every possible senior municipal post in the Western Cape goes to an ID cadre.
Because, O!O has learned, as much as 25% of the earnings of such functionaries are paid to ID coffers.
Easily. Up to 35% of NPP appointments’ earnings flow back to party coffers.
The ANC, the DA, all political parties have this mechanism. It’s just that the cash-strapped parties charge more.
Think about it… Wessie van der Westhuizen, Charles Sanders, Trevor Botha, Walter Hendricks, Gerhard Ras, to name but a few.
O, Patricia herself!
No, O!O is not saying these are bad functionaries. O!O is just saying, like Oom Schalk Lourens of Herman Charles Bosman fame.

Making sure they see it your way
Unfortunately, SOMETHING must happen.
And, O!O’s prediction is that there will be consequences for Eden Speaker Doris Nayler and Eden Municipal Manager Godfrey Louw.
Of course not!
