Local government elections: Expert warns ANC to prepare itself to be an opposition party after November 1
De Visser, however, expressed concern that the 33 municipalities which were placed under administration were mostly ANC controlled. He also raised the issue of the collapse of governance in Phokwane Municipality in Jan Kempdorp in the Northern Cape, where councillors elected two rival Speakers for the same municipality. De Visser also indicated the collapse of governance at Metsimaholo Municipality in Sasolburg in the Free State, where councillors defied instructions of an MEC and held a separate meeting where they announced the appointment of municipal officials.
In his warning, De Visser said: “It impacts on service delivery immediately and on the dignity of residents. The ANC must hold its councillors to account and be responsible in the future.”Almost the same sentiments were expressed by ANC think tank Joel Netshitenzhe who was part of the panel at the launch of the barometer.
Netshitenzhe, who also addressed the launch virtually, warned the ANC to stop its councillors from influencing bureaucrats in municipalities to serve their own interests.He said the South African Local Government Association (Salga) which was formerly led by Thembi Nkadimeng, now Deputy Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, should set up a pledge for bureaucrats to resist political pressure from councillors. headtopics.com
Nkadimeng was also part of the panel and she introduced the full content of the barometer and its expectations from the ANC councillors and municipalities controlled by it.Netshitenzhe, however, in his address also echoed sentiments expressed by the former ANC president Thabo Mbeki when he called upon his party to sign a social compact with businesses and civil society organisations in their bid to collectively improve the living conditions of South African people.
Like Mbeki, Netshitenzhe said the social compact would improve the local economy and livelihoods of people in a particular community and municipality.He, however, bemoaned the collapse of social responsibility programmes in mining communities, saying that social compact between mining bosses and workers, including communities, had faltered drastically over the years despite written agreements.
Netshitenzhe asked the ANC to consider involving taxi operators in Prasa to revive the rail system, which was destroyed during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Read more: IOL News »
