Get rid of municipal incompetents

IF ALL the service delivery protests are not a lesson and a wake-up call to our government to employ competent and capable people to run municipalities after the next local government elections, then they would have dug their own grave.

It is time to fill top positions with competent people, not a bunch of incompetents from a circle of friends or affiliations, who flush our municipalities down the drain. I fail to understand why a person who messes up one municipality gets a top post in another municipality after a five-year term. What message is this sending to qualified, capable and competent people and to the world as well? And the less said about the confused lot called councillors, the better.
