Premier's stand disrespectful

I read with concern the Sowetan report headlined "Premier defies the ANC".

While I agree that service delivery mandates should be observed by all our public office bearers, I fail to understand Limpopo Premier Sello Moloto's assertion that service delivery lags behind.

He says this is because of the appointment of senior managers.

Government processes of filling a post take up to three months, but appointing a person from within the system to act in a vacant position is a matter of a day or two.

Does he want to tell us that his office did not have succession planning in place?

I find hiss position a direct provocation of the current provincial executive committee of the ANC and a display of disrespect of the highest order.

As a deployee of the ANC in government, he is duty bound to respect its PEC's decisions unless he wants to tell us that he already has a completed membership for Shikota-cum-Congress of the People.

Perhaps what he needs is to be pushed out as an excuse to jump ship to Shikota because he cannot claim to be a loyal member of the ANC, which he continuously undermines.

The collective decisions of the ANC bind members equally and Moloto is no exception.
