Speech by
Glenda Steyn MPL

“G-Fleet needs to get its act together”

  • A year ago, the entity assured SCOPA that it had a plan of action to remedy the matter, yet the saga continues as does the mystery.
  • The difference between Avis or Budget or any other commercial car hire company and g-Fleet is that somehow, the records of the entity just are not available to be able to effectively bill, collect and report on revenue.
  • The MEC will tell us that it is revenue generating and hence brings income into the province which can be spent on service delivery. But Mr MEC, we can only be sure of that if the entity can account accurately.

Graham Gersbach MPL

“We can’t afford another disastrous year with g-Fleet”

  • The problems with g-fleet did not arise overnight and the warning signs were long before the 2013/14 Annual Report and yet the entity went from an adverse opinion to a disclaimer.
  • There are a number of similar fleet management businesses offering both long term vehicle leases and short term rentals and fleet management inclusive of maintenance.
  • The MEC must ensure that any promises made this year are met else it will show that there is a total lack of political will to resolve the problems facing g-Fleet.
