Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 3 June 2013. 13h30. The Verwoerd Sq management just released the following media statement:

The administration of the Oudtshoorn Municipality is today continuing business as normal, ensuring service delivery to residents in the face even of political showmanship.

The IEC acknowledged five vacancies in the Oudtshoorn Council at 09h35 today to confirm that Messrs Pieter Luiters, Hendrik Botha, Jeremy Goliath, Hendrik Ruiters, and Jurie Harmse are no longer councillors of Oudtshoorn.

Four of the former councillors served on the Mayco, and the Mayor, Alderman Gordon April, responded immediately by announcing a new executive:

• The Deputy Mayor, Alderman Vlancio Donson;
• The Speaker, Alderman Johannes Stoffels, ex officio;
• Councillor Lea Stalmeester: Corporate Services;
• Councillor Nondumiso Gunguluza: Community Services;
• Councillor Zoliswa Phillips: Finanace;
• Alderman Charlie Wagenaar: Technical Services;
• Councillor Erik Ngalo: Strategic Services.

The Mayor this morning also extended the tenure of the acting Municipal Manager, Mr Ron Lottering, for 30 days, by his delegated authority.

The Western Cape Minister of Local Government had been approached to condone the extension demanded by the exigency of the current Oudtshoorn political uncertainty which resulted in the inability of Council to appoint the chosen candidate on Friday.

The Speaker is confident of approaching the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday to seek relief setting aside the consititution and decisions of the meeting of 17 councillors which follwed the closure of the Council Meeting on May 31.
