Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 14 May 2014. 07h30. As O!O predicted many times, Western Cape minister of local government Anton Bredell exonerated Eden Mayor Wessie van der Westhuizen.
In a letter dated 23 April – 14 days before the May 7 general election – Bredell informed speaker Doris Naylor and Van der Westhuizen that the prosecution was not conducted according to the rules of natural justice and that Van der Westhuizen’s main accuser, deputy mayor Essau, was biased.
Now, my longsuffering readers, I need someone to explain to my, like I’m a five year-old, why Oudtshoorn ratepayers are, apparently, so desperately concerned about legal expenditure by the ANC/Icosa/NPP coalition for protecting the integrity of council, while not a word is uttered in the face of gross mismanagement and gross wasteful and fruitless expenditure and gross violation of supply chain policy in the alleged R3m persecution (sic) of Van der Westhuizen – by his own party, the DA!
I need to come to an understanding of how Eden MM Godfrey Louw is currently proceeding against former Eden senior managers and directors for alleged supply chain violations when Louw – Louw of all people! – have committed some R3m in an investigation of some R20k questionable spend… and not a wopd from the Zero Tolerance shammers lurking in the Marks Building!?
Why the delay in announcing Van der Westhuizen’s vindication!?
Why not before the election?
Like… Why announce Liniwe Mazibuko’s defection days after the election?
Such selective dissemination of critical information before an election is nothing but deceipt; nothing but crude cheating; nothing but the fleecing of the voters.
The DA manages by deceit. The DA manages by disinformation. The DA manages by mendacity. The DA manages by plain bloodymindedness. The DA sells snake oil, silver bullets, and perdedrolle vir vye. The DA is a despicable alliance of fringe frauds frollicking in the fleecing of fruitcake voters.
Take the pathetic Oudtshoorn DA whimper that it is prohibited from governing by illegal means.
What consummate crap!
And many Oudtshoorn voters fall for this line!?
Aggenee mense. Godsk! Wakker skrik, man.
Back to the Wessie fiasco.
If Wessie is to stay, then deputy mayor Essau; speaker Naylor; and the main drivers of what has now been found to have been a baseless persecution – councillors Tertuis Simmers and Johann Koegelenberg – must surely be fired!?
And Godfrey Louw must certainly do!
Louw must go! Louw must go! Louw must go! Louw must go!
Louw’s abject arrogance is almost certainly spawned of personal grievance against former colleagues he now is sueing for apprant mismanagement of which Louw himself is allegedly guilty!
The DA is exposed. The presence of Mazibuko during the campaign; the clear refusal to announce the Wessie decision before the election, shows up the DA’s mendacious corporate character.
The DA acts against the very people who uphold the DA’s so-called “principles”: Pierre Nel in 2007; Peter Roberts in 2014.
The rogues remain.
Despicable. The Despicable Alliance.
I know for a fact of at least two Eden DA councillors that flirted with the ANC in the weeks running up to the May 7 elections. Both were waiting for the Wessie decision to make their move. Both stayed in the absence of a decision and in anticipation of DA zero tolerance in action.
They trusted the DA. Their careers are consequently severely compromised.
Trust to the DA?
If you are soft in the head, yes!
