UNITED DEMOCRATIC MOVEMENT
UDM CONCERN ABOUT TWO GAUTENG LOCAL GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATIONS
STATEMENT ISSUED BY MALIZOLE DIKO
United Democratic Movement (UDM) is very concerned about reports of two
municipal councils in Gauteng which are obviously experiencing serious
administrative and management problems.
is clear that all is not well in these local authorities and it is our citizens
who suffer for it. Taxpayers' money is wasted and mismanagement by the ANC local
government in Gauteng. When the public learns of such problems, in the financial
administration of our municipalities, it just creates distrust and suspicion.
How can a citizen trust a system that squanders the taxpayers' money?
UDM calls on the local government structures in Gauteng to urgently and actively
search for sustainable solutions and to manage their problems on a day-to-day
basis, rather than waiting for it to escalate into paralysing failures of
service delivery. It is also essential that the culture of non-payment is
eradicated in order for our municipalities to function properly.
