Cope vows to correct wrongs of the past as it launches manifesto
The Congress of the People (Cope) has used Heritage Day to launch its manifesto for the local government elections on November 1.
Lekota decried the widespread service delivery failures across the country.“Roads are full of potholes. Sewage flows on to the streets. Water supply is interrupted, sometimes for months on end. Rubbish lies heaped on the side of the roads. Streams are contaminated. Violence and crime continue to escalate in many areas of the country. Many municipalities cannot even offer essential basic services on a sustainable basis. At the same time, rates and tariffs are increasing to a point that people just cannot afford electricity or water,” he said.
Democracy is defined as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, with the peopleCope president Mosiuoa LekotaHe said that under his government, all Cope councillors would be trained to understand and implement the Public Finance Management Act and, where it is violated, to blow the whistle without fear or favour.
“Cope will ensure better-run councils, job creation, accountability, transparency, rule of law, promotion and development of entrepreneurs, and quality services at affordable tariffs,” he said, to applause from the audience.“In our view, democracy is defined as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, with the people. Our Constitution makes every one of us equal before the law. headtopics.com
“However, when our communities surrender their power and influence to a political party, as has been happening for many years, politicians live large and become a law unto themselves.READ: “The local government election offers you an opportunity to make things better for yourself, your community and South Africa,” he said.
Lekota said Cope would always uphold the Constitution and the rule of law with full commitment.“We will not stray from the Constitution as the supreme law of the country. We interpret the Constitution to be in favour of the people and in support of accountability and transparency.”
In outlining the party’s plans, Lekota’s deputy Willie Madisha said Cope intends to correct the wrongs of the past. He said Cope is the only party that can provide adequate service delivery, and that the party wouldn’t make false promises to people that they are not going to pay for services.
Our mandate and focus will be making sure that municipalities prioritise economic inclusion and economic development for underdeveloped areas and townshipsWillie Madisha“Everyone will be required to play their part in making sure that they pay their taxes so that service delivery will be achieved. headtopics.com
“Our mandate and focus will be making sure that municipalities prioritise economic inclusion and economic development for underdeveloped areas and townships,” he said.He said the party promises to ensure affordable energy and internet connectivity through fibre for all.
He said they will create wealth for township property owners, as well as adequate water supply and affordability.Cope also promised to upgrade the municipal sewerage system and to build more houses for the poor. Support for the party has been declining with each election since its formation. In the 2019 election, it lost one seat and kept two seats in the National Assembly.Read more: City Press »

Hong hong 😂😂😂😂😂 Cope can't Cope anymore!!! It died long ago!! . It was formed out out anger and some of its members went back to beg Nxamalala. Smuts Ngonyama is one of them and Nxamalala forgave him and gave him a job. What a good Man ubaba Jacob Zuma is. 🤣🤣🤣😂😅😂🤣 Rule of law in America means the Europeans work together to rob and kill the Americans so they can inherit our resources and genocide our tribes. Rules are not laws. Rules over laws means justice is not about fairness at all. Rules define winners and losers. Euro Money wins.

You fought with Mbhazima Shilowa for the rightful president position and, you got it but, to the demise of your COPE. Ono swana le Zuma le Ramaphosa who are fighting to ride a dying fatigue horse but still think the horse hv some miles before it can die real death I read ‘cops’, now I feel like that’s actually a great idea, the COPS need to be relaunched! We need a refresh!
The wrong of the past that must be corrected is the return to active politics of Mr Mosiua Lekota. Time to focus on other things bro VoteCOPE Are you still relevant ? You are starting your manifesto launch by apologizing, a month before the elections...why is there never an apology or explanation at any other time. COPE is actually battling to cope with anonymity...find a partner, merge and consolidate !!!
Cope still coping 🤷♂️🤷♂️

Voices | How the EFF plans to stop the tenderpreneurship rot | CitypressThere is a dangerous notion doing the rounds that to extend service delivery to our people in towns, cities and municipalities, we have to outsource the provision of services – even at such basic levels as cleaners, security guards and landscapers. All my experience happens to be total failure but i never gave up because i knew it was going to work out for me someday, fortunately am smiling today by getting involved with a manager I came across on a Tweet lisamiaBTC all I can say is she is the best of all. I was referred to him by a friend online and I thought is a scam ...but I was moved to try and here I earned.. just want to share this to people too.
