Govt promise to Malamulele must be made public

Jacques Smalle MPL

DA Limpopo Provincial Leader:

The Democratic Alliance will today write to Mmakoma Makhurupetsa, MEC for Coghsta to demand that the memorandum that was agreed upon by Government and Malamulele people be made public.

Publication of the memorandum will ensure transparency and accountability and will avoid that this agreement again becomes an empty promise, something that the Malamulele community is much familiar with.

This follows the recent act of arson that destroyed a school library just hours after the agreement was reached, leaving speculations that the agreement possibly did not suit all parties.

The act of arson cannot be classified only as a crime when there is far more to it than meets the eye.

The education acting MEC’s sentiments that the fire was merely a result of criminal elements is blatantly misleading because police investigations are still at play.
