ANC ignored DA warning in Cederberg

Helmar Geyer MPP Democratic Alliance Constituency Head for Cederberg Marius Fransman’s admittance that the ANC has managed the Cederberg municipality off the deep end comes much too late. Fransman and the ANC have scoffed at warnings and facts given to them by the Democratic Alliance throughout 2012. Instead of listening to the DA, the leaders of the ANC in Cederberg Municipality went on tyrannical raids, accusing the DA of racism and delusions. On 2 July 2012, I issued a statement on behalf of the DA, warning the ANC that severe financial malpractice is taking place in Cederberg. Jonas White called my warnings sensationalist and ludicrous. On 3 August 2012, another statement was issued, where I pointed out how the ANC was handling human resources in the Municipality, making space for cadre deployment and wasting millions on suspensions and legal fees. In 9 December 2012, I issued another statement, pointing out how dire the situation is for the municipality. The DA has also been in continuous contact with the Public Protector concerning the problems of Cederberg municipality. We contacted the Public Protector on the following dates: 4 July 2012 , 21 August 2012 and again in September 2012 to report cases of maladministration, financial mismanagement and corruption. The ANC is now struggling to manage the Cederberg disaster, which has been 2 years in the making. They however refused to listen to warnings. Now the entire Western Cape and South Africa can see the ANC for what they truly are. Their greed has driven corrupt practices in the Cederberg Municipality over the edge. This is the true ANC, this is happening across South Africa. This is why the DA is now the only option for South Africa.
