So, after all the hoo-hah, there is no mismanagement or corruption!
If not even his cabinet colleagues believe him, how can anything Ivan Meyer says be taken seriously?

Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. September 16, 2014. 07h40. The DA has made general and vague accusations about mismanagement, theft, corruption, and inability against the municipality, and even ad hominem upon ad hominem abounded.
But the DA is also crystal clear that there is no real reason to believe that mismanagement, theft, corruption, and inability exist in the Municipality.
Had there been even a real suspicion of wrongdoing, the second term Western Cape Minister of Local Government, Anton Bredell, would have had to intervene – Section 106 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act No. 32 of 2000 allows no discretion by the minister: he HAS to act.
Bredell has not acted.
Therefore, there is no real indication of mismanagement, theft, corruption, and inability in the municipality… even after master Ivan Meyer and his pack of scabby local hounds had convinced a hapless media and every man and his dog that Oudtshoorn is corrupt. The Western Cape Minister of Local Government clearly does not even have any regard for Ivan’s rantings and ravings as the noise does not even make the minister suspicious.
Stop Whinging, DA.
Man up. Grow balls. Come back to work.
Either Ivan lies so badly not even his own colleagues believe him, or Bredell is incompetent – which he can’t possibly be, as the Godess of Politics herself, Otta Helena, appointed Bredell – twice!
