Mokonyane soft on Westonaria corruption

Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane‘s refusal to intervene decisively in the Westonaria council shows that she is soft on corruption.

She should institute a forensic probe into Westonaria council, which is one of the worst performing municipalities in Gauteng.

Bekkersdal residents have made serious allegations of corruption against Westonaria mayor Nonkoliso Thundzi that need to be investigated.

The proposed merger of Westonaria with Randfontein will not solve deep-rooted management problems that have led to frequent service delivery protests.

Speedy action is needed to ensure that corruption is uprooted in the Westonaria council, otherwise this administration will continue to fail.
