The African National Congress is starting its “dispute resolution process” in a bid to address the a.
The murder of ANC councillor Ntai Mokoena of Metsimaholo township by an angry Free State mob is unacceptabl. Such things should not be allowed to happen.
I cannot understand the reason why the mob had to go to the home of the councillor to vent their anger over service delivery.
We live in a democracy and there are channels that can be followed - rather than resorting to the killing of innocent officials.
What kind of society are we building in which people will go to the homes of councillors and attack them because of grievances?
Yes, I understand that there are legitimate frustrations with the slow pace of service delivery by local government, but that does not mean councillors should be killed.
It is time that we taught our people that violence is not the way to solve social problems.
Communities should rather sit down with their councillors and try to resolve whatever problems they are experiencing.
However, we should also expose councillors who are lazy and rude.
I say this because there are some councillors who are not interested in the development of their communities but only in filling their own stomachs.
