Twenty-eight female guards were unfairly dismissed by a security company because the client‚ Metrora.
The steps taken by Premier Sello Moloto in Limpopo to replace MECs should not be taken personally, but should be viewed in the knowledge that as the head of the provincial government he is responsible for choosing or ejecting MECs.
The council should be reconfigured whenever the effectiveness of its structure is reviewed to enable the government to improve its service delivery.
The premier, like mayors, speakers and councillors, should be accorded the necessary respect and support and should be given sufficient space in which to lead.
It is unfortunate that certain organisations have created smoke screens that project the premier's actions as personal matters.
Let us trust that Moloto's shuffle will strengthen the government's leadership role in the process of reconstruction and development.
I wish to also dismiss insinuations that the ousted MECs were corrupt. There is no court of law that has reached that conclusion. The MECs have worked tirelessly to improve the lives of the people and they can still contribute elsewhere.
It would be unfair to keep on attributing the council change to corruption.
Best wishes to new MECs Justice Pitso and Saad Cachalia.
