AN "ARROGANT AND LAZY" Limpopo ANC ward councillor, accused of living the high life with his family, could be one of the first councillors to be dismissed from the ANC.
Masilo Maloko of ward 9 in the Tzaneen municipality has been accused by residents of looking down on people who put him in office.
This was after Maloko dismissed the villagers when they went to his mansion in GaMoleketla to demand water, electricity, roads, bridges, sanitation and housing in their communities.
Maloko allegedly told the villagers he was too busy to engage them because he was going to a meeting with Premier Cassel Mathale and President Jacob Zuma in Lenyenye, outside Tzaneen.
"We also wanted to know why we still buy water from people with boreholes 15 years after democracy.
"But Maloko told us that he had other important issues to deal with rather than listen to our boring demands," said Kenny Khosa of Mopje village.
To demonstrate their anger about 1200 villagers took to the streets on Sunday calling for Maloko's dismissal.
Maloko said some people who took part in the march were responsible for the shortage of water in the area.
He accused a former councillor of not completing a R4million water project after being awarded the contract by the municipality.
