'Municipal managers incapable'

THE Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) in Limpopo has pleaded with Premier Cassel Mathale to put the Sekhukhune district municipality under administration.

The PAC said yesterday their action was informed by the municipality's annual dismal performance.

The municipality received a disclaimer from the Auditor-General for the 11th year since it was formed in 2000.

"The performance of this municipality shows that there is a sense of incompetence among its managers. We therefore call on the premier to put the municipality under administration or replace the municipal manager, the chief financial officer and manager in the supply chain management," said PAC provincial spokesman Aubrey Ngwatle.

Ngwatle said the decision was taken at the party's strategic meeting in Polokwane on Saturday.

The province has 30 municipalities, with only two - Fetakgomo local municipality and Waterberg district municipality - having received a clean audit.

Municipality spokesman Willy Mosoma yesterday said it had already fired manager Samson Makunyane, chief financial officer Thandiwe Lengwati and human resources manager Magomarela Hlakudi a fortnight ago for being unable to provide good leadership. The council has appointed Mapula Mokoko as the new manager.

When a municipality get its 1st, 2nd and 3rd disclaimer, something drastic must be done. Why on earth should it be up to 11 times?

PAC, you have done a great job indeed. Those corrupted managers ,and CFO should go back to school and study Local Government Management, and CFO must specialize with Municipal Finance Management and have a good understanding about Municipal Financial Management Act, HR Management must specialise with Municipal Human Resource Management. We are very much dissapointed.

u can say this again. the district has been declared the poorer of the poor some time ago but the setuation is getting worser daily. People who run this municibality are gold diggers and all they do is to enrich themselves, friends n families.
Remember our own MEC for education Mr Namae Dickson Masemola was the manager of the Municipality twice or thrice. Now c what he is doing with our Education. He does show that he is a real product of most corrupt Municibality and he is now pushing that corruption as MEC for Education.
