Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 25 March 2013. 00h01. I wote the new Eden DA constituency head, WesternCape minister of finance, economic development and tourism, on Saturday:
The Constituency Head
Mr Alan Winde
Please respond expeditiously to the following:
1) With the 20 strong extended DA Caucus reduced to 17, one short of a quorum, with Wessie van der Westhuizen and Gert Niehaus not allowed to be present, and the Bitou representative not yet installed, which steps are you taking to ensure that the apparent DA controlled Eden council pass a resolution to give effect to the ENS report at the next council meeting this coming week?
I trust that you realise your tally to be 16 in fact, as no sentient politician, such as you, would absolutely trust to an undertaking of the Eden Cope member.
2) The George Herald reported on Thursday, as did O!O on March 16 already, that the mayoral vehicle exceeds the speed limit 95% of the time used. This outrageous figure makes for a high probability that the mayor personally had been speeding while driving the car at least at certain instances, and certainly indicates that the car had been speeding at some instances with the mayor as passenger.
Which steps are you taking to ensure that the drivers of the official mayoral vehicle be investigated?
3) Do you acknowledge damage to the DA brand by the above doingses of your caucus members and their functionaries, so justifying an appeal to you and not, for instance, an appeal to the municipal manager, or to the speaker?
4) Are you in correspondence with your peer in Oudtshoorn, Jac Bekker, as Van der Westhuizen is a member too of the Oudtshoorn caucus?
It is beyond me that the DA can be mum about the charges against its mayor!
