eThekwini Metro MoNC: City heads off a cliff as Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda is Retained as City Mayor

During today’s council meeting, the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) tabled a Motion of No Confidence against the eThekwini Metro Municipality, Mxolisi Kaunda, but it would appear that the Municipality is headed for disaster as the Mayor retains his position as the City Mayor.

It is disheartening that some smaller political parties made the decision to abstain from voting, or voted against the motion to remove Kaunda, who has, on numerous occasions, displayed that he is unfit to perform the duties of his office, and has steered the Metro towards a point of no return.

The decision made by those who chose to retain the Mayor further proves that the African National Congress (ANC) operates within other political parties who have sworn to remove the ANC for the betterment of our nation.

The Auditor-General’s report painted a grim picture of the state of the Municipality during today’s proceedings, where an astounding amount of R3.6 billion was written off due to irregular expenditure, robbing residents of eThekwini of job opportunities and better service delivery amongst other things, however, certain political parties demonstrated their support for the Mayor to continue his quest to cripple the Municipality, along with its residents.

However, not all is lost. What happened today serves as evidence to the people of eThekwini about what differentiates those who care for their livelihoods, from those who seek to punish them by retaining  Kaunda as the Mayor.

ActionSA applauds those who displayed true ethical leadership and put the residents of eThekwini before their own interests, by voting for the motion in an effort to rescue eThekwini from its current state.
