Summat’s gotta give!
Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 11 September 2013. 11h20. The prosecutor in the disciplinary matter Eden District Municipality v Vernatt van der Westhuizen argues for a severe sanction to follow on the tribunal’s guilty finding:
That DA Executive Mayor of Eden – he is also the DA Caucus Chair in Oudtshoorn – Wessie van der Westhuizen, be forthwith removed as mayor… and as councillor.
Yet, so my mole in the DA’s top leadership reports, Fedex Chair James Selfe is not wont to remove Wessie and is suggesting that the “process” – that god-awful smattering of sounds arrogating as a word: “process” – be honoured before Wessie is made history.
Wessie is teflon coated because he is one of the only Independent Democrats in any position of power – after Patricia de Lille.
When next you hear Helen Zille talk of “clean government”…
