Ye gods and faeries – the arrogance of some of these applicants… For some of the applicants to expect to get the nod given their management records!

But O!O has good news for the people of Oudtshoorn. A 36th candidate will eventually be added to the short list to be compiled from this long list. And there is a very good chance, O!O thinks, that this 36th candidate will be appointed:

The Reverend Noël Martin Pietersen – “Noelie” vir sy vrinne, soos Diane de Jager. En “Dooms” vir ons gewone ou’s.

But he didn’t even apply, you say. He can’t make it onto the short list, he’s not even on the long list!

Neither was the Karoo Hoogland MM, Ernest Saayman, sacked by Northen Cape High Court order last Friday when he was appointed on 28 November 2011 – by a DA/Cope governed council!

He was just “slipped in through the back door”.

More about this looming DA scandal later.

By the by, Oudtshoorn’s immediate past MM, Thandekile Mnyimba, is being forced upon the good people of the Blue Crane Municipality. Blue Crane is in the Eastern Cape and a failed province already, so Thandekile should fit right in, as he did to the satisfaction of the bucolic masses in Jansenville before Oudtshoorn.

The ANC, bent on accommodating the chap that the High Court found unqualified for the job, is petitioning all who would listen to have the appontment requirements adjusted to accommodate Thandekile.

Ye gods and faeries.

Mnyimba could not manage celibacy among castrati.

  1. Ek dog hy is van Wellington en moet sy fandamily nou uitwyk vir joppies ? Hoop nie dis nepotisme, contacts in high social places, irrespective of experience and a very open and transparent process nie ! Tyd sal leer.

    Vra vir Nick Barrow om die ding haarfyn dop te hou. Hy en die Conradie’s het n merkwaardige geskiedenis van juristiese letterkundige finesse wat Nick laas loshande gewen het.

    Hier kom n ding… of dalk n gerieflikheidshalwe onttrekkinkie van Stefaans se dogtertjie.
    Mense leer tog so staaaadig, dinge ‘daarbo’ funksioneer nie altyd so lekka nie ! Kry vir Skerp Nick in !
    OO soek stories wat sondes met die bure ontloot !

  2. Is Stephanie Korabie somehow related to Oudtshoorn’s Worcester based attorney, Duncan Korabie?

  3. Lyk vir my die werkloosheid staan blou in die blom. 35 hopefuls!! 2 uit die Bitou bende. My geld is op Stratu hy sal net so mooi in pas soos Deon Daantjie.

    Kom ons ruil. Bitou gee vir Oudtshoorn al ons raadslede, Stratu en Mattheus, ons betaal al die verskuiwings kostes en Oudtshoorn gee vir ons Nic Barrow. Deal??

  4. Dit blyk nag te wees vir ODN
    Op die lys verskyn ene Stephanie Korabie ?
    O!O, gee ons asb meer detail oor hierdie dame, haar kwalifikasies, kontakte, waar sy woonagtig is, ens ens.
    Ek vermoed, hier kom n ding, die lys inaggenome, ook dit wat dalk nie oppie lys verskyn nie !
