Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 1 July 2013. 06h00. Here’s the thing, about the 3 by-elections of August 7: The ANC does not want to win control of Council.


Those in the know won’t talk, but I suspect Oudtshoorn is the pay-off for some deal in the Western Cape.

I have my strong suspicions, but I am not ready to publish.

The DA announced its candidates on Friday:

• Ward 5 – Hendrik Ruiters;
• Ward 6 – Ben van Wyk;
• Ward 13 – Jurie Harmse.

Now a blind half-wit can see what’s happening here:

The DA has to win only one ward to gain control; the ANC must win all three.

The ANC’s Western Cape leadership can easily throw the game by winning two wards (5 and 13) and “unfortunately” losing a third (6).

Come now, my dear longsuffering readers: who in their right minds would put up Hendrik Ruiters and Jurie Harmse as candidates!?


As transparant as the lingerie in a Playboy centrefold.

The DA refused Ben van Wyk as a ward candidate in 2011 for reasons I think not appropriate to publish at this time. I’ll leave this bit for some days before August 7.

The DA considers wards 5 and 13 as already lost; the ANC is informed.

Ward 13 is the real fight.

We’ll see who the ANC candidate is before calling the mother of all political deals.

I don’t want either the ANC or the DA in control of Oudtshoorn.

Come now, do YOU trust any one of the two!?

But we’ll get one of these.

However you vote, the government will come in.
