This 2011 letter was the first of many obstructive steps by the Democratic Alliance (DA) that allowed approximately R36-million in illegal funding to a private company called Knysna Tourism. That’s tender fraud.
Knysna Mayor Georlene Wolmarans was the first DA politician to officially block me. With this 2011 letter, she ignored the transparency that she, Councillors Esme Edge and Councillor Michelle Wasserman had promised me in previous meetings.
She subtly tried to intimidate me by saying that Helen Zille and Alan Winde had received all my correspondence, as if I’d done something wrong. I’m betting that was part of the file Helen Zille threateningly waved at me during a Public Meeting later that year. Again, I’d done no wrong, so told her she could read it to the crowd. so long as she answered my questions.. she didn’t read it and wouldn’t hear my questions.
I could never have known in those early days how dark the DA would make my life. The DA could never have known that I wouldn’t give up.1e 2011.08.24 Mayor Georlene Wolmans letter to Mike Hampton
