The law doesn’t matter. Career politics matters cause long-term relationships are across parties. In South Africa, political corruption is protected until one of your fellow politicians stabs you in the back. That perverted justice has yet to arrive for the many dirty DA politicians I’ve exposed. ANC fans need to ask why their leaders aren’t acting as opposition, the ACDP asked why the DA is more important to them than the sins of the DA. At least the EFF’s position is clear – they’ll sellout for any advantage.
My ‘Love Knysna Petition’ to Parliament resulted in the Committee on Petitions & Executive Undertakings holding 3 hearings in 2017. DA evasion continued. Then Mayor Georlene Wolmarans only appeared after she was threatened with arrest. At the third hearing, new Mayor Spies never arrived, lying that she was working on the Knysna budget when she was in fact 300km away in Beaufort West, campaigning with DA Leader Mmusi Maimane. Why did the Committee not hold her accountable for her lie to them?
The Committee comprises a representative from each of South Africa’s provinces who, on September 2017, recommended to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) that the National Office of the Public Protector investigate all my allegations and why the Western Cape offices of the Public Protector failed to do their job regarding my 13 complaints.
The recommendations were tabled in December but none have been willing to explain why it hasn’t been debated by the House of Parliament, a requirement for adoption, the past 6 months.
The ANC’s Western Cape representatives, Ebrahim Rasool and Faiez Jacobs, aren’t interested. NCOP Chair Thandi Modise has repeatedly dodged answering which is why I’ve now laid complaint with the Office of President Cyril Ramaphosa.
After I published the Committee’s letter in January 2018, the George Office of the Public Protector suddenly contacted me to state that my cases had been prioritised and that they’d be interviewing Knysna Municipal Manager Kam Chetty on February 12 2018. However, there’s been no response as to why implicated DA members, such as Premier Helen Zille, MEC Alan Winde and MEC Anton Bredell have not being interviewed the past 19 months. And there’s been no update from the Public Protector on anything the past 4 months.
It’s these failures that has allowed the latest Knysna crisis and the Western Cape Government to threaten to sue me on behalf of Helen Zille and other crooked people involved in the corruption I’ve exposed.
It’s disturbing that the DA leadership seems to be protected by powerful figures in opposition parties and the justice bodies the Public are supposed to rely on for protection. For me, the lack of political check and balance, and the absence of a justice system for the past 7 years of my activism, is the biggest sign that South Africa will continue to slide towards disaster.
