RELEASE ISSUED BY ANNELIZÉ VAN WYK, MP,
ACTING SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE UDM
what has become a style of governance for Mpumalanga, the ANC government
in that province continues to mislead the public and waste taxpayer's
When Prince James Mahlangu defected from the UDM and joined the ANC, the UDM
asked whether the speculation over his offered position in the Mpumalanga
government was true - this was vigorously denied by the ANC. Now, Prince
Mahlangu has personally made public that he had been promised the position of
"Provincial Director Traditional Affairs" in the Office of the
Premier. Prince Mahlangu expects that his appointment will be announced before 1
The ANC needs to answer to the people:
Why are they using taxpayer's money to buy and reward loyalty to the ANC? It
sounds like the practices of the politburo.
2. Where does this position "Provincial Director Traditional Affairs"
originate? In no other province or at national level, does such a position exist
or is provision made for it.
3. How does the ANC justify appointing a person, who cited medical disability
(backed up by a medical certificate) as reason for leaving public life, back
into public life and -service? How will he be able to fulfil his duties?
The ANC government talk the talk, but they don't walk the walk! Intervention in
the Mpumalanga government, by the ANC at a higher level, is long overdue.
President Mbeki should make it clear whether the actions of the Mpumalanga
government, reflect the ethics that the people can expect from the Mbeki
