Dodovu destroyed council

ALLOW me to respond briefly to the article about the mayor of Klerksdorp's imminent resignation from politics.

China Dodovu must just go now because he has just succeeded in destroying anything and everything the dear Matlosana council had achieved before his appointment.

The 2011 local government elections are a long way off and if the myopic ANC does not see that Dodovu will limit its winning range I don't know what kind of liberation organisation it is.

Dodovu is going to cost the organisation dearly in the coming elections.

It would be in the organisation and voters' best interests if the ANC took decisive steps to redress this anomaly since the 2011 elections will be brutal.

We need a trusted steward, who is grounded with the people and clued up about socioeconomic issues, to take us out of this morass.

Our people have not revolted and I pray that the status quo remains, but action is required to avert this situation.

We also need to make sure that all contracts are vetted, with recipients accounting for each and every cent of taxpayers' money they have spent.

This should be followed by a value-for-money audit of all projects that have been undertaken to minimise the javelin syndrome that is prevalent in the Matlosana council.
