STOP HIDING, KNYSNA MAYOR ELEANORE SPIES!
The response to a witness and me reporting the Democratic Alliance to Parliament for corruption has been another propaganda campaign. It’s unfortunate but must be embraced as further evidence that will result in greater punishment of the crooked who’ve chosen to serve themselves instead of Knysna.
On her Facebook page, Mayor Eleanore Spies stated: “There is something very wrong when two people who have no mandate from the Greater Knysna residents nor the local newspaper go to Parliament and state fiction as fact.”
She’s obviously forgotten citizen rights and her place as a Public representative. She’s stating crime cannot be reported unless the majority of Knysna’s population agrees – ridiculous. She’s treating us as if we were representing the Knysna-Plett Herald against her when readers know I’ve long fought that newspaper’s bias – ridiculous.
Let’s get onto her claim of my corruption and maladministration by municipal officials and politicians being “fiction”. Besides the fact readers have witnessed much chaos for years, why has Mayor Spies not followed the law which is to investigate complaints? Parliament was only necessary because she and her colleagues chose cover-up.
SHE’S HIDING THIS
Why’s she not answered regards:
- Illegal contracting of her friend to run the Communication’s Department.
- Illegal appointment of Director Community Services.
- Alleged bribing of municipal officials by her husband as shown by the forensic report.
- Illegal funding of Knysna Tourism – cronyism, wasted funds and failure to spend allocated amount on development of previously disadvantaged people.
- Illegal awarding of ISDF tender (to decide town’s future) to a consortium headed by a local property developer who never won the tender.
- Possibly illegal appointments of two Fire Services leaders.
- DA’s propaganda campaign that used child abuse and claims of mental illness to try silence me.
- The DA’s abuse of the courts to try silence me.
- Suspension of Budget Manager at R870,000 cost.
- Illegal study payments for opposition Councillors.
- Illegal East Head Cafe lease and R7-million debt to the Public from the Senza lease.
- R3-million forensic investigation failure into Traffic Department.
- R2-million loss from Municipal Manager investigation.
- Majority of the Electrical Department’s tenders awarded to Manager’s husband.
STOP HIDING, MAYOR SPIES
I want Mayor Spies to stop abusing her power, to stop hiding, and for me to debate her publicly in Council Chambers so that the Public and Media can judge for themselves. If she’s so confident she’s right and I’m wrong, WHY IS SHE HIDING?
Why did Mayor Eleanore Spies go to a DA rally in Beaufort West, 300km away from us, instead of wanting to attend Parliament to ‘set the record straight’. Why does she hide, resorting to another propaganda press release?
Knysna is a politically selfish town that’s being supported by politically selfish DA leaders in Cape Town who don’t care about us!
