Despite this, they are not prepared to be honest with the public about the state of Knysna. They are not prepared to uphold the DA’s election promises of austerity, open doors and transparency.
The DA lied to us!
And don’t be one of those propaganda fools who calls me ANC when I criticise the DA. The DA is in power, not the ANC. I DO NOT support the ANC and despise any Councillor who does not publicly state their disgust at the financial rape of South Africa by Zuma and his friends. And damn Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa for his part in the Marikana Massacre and avoiding tax by sending his mining profits overseas.
My focus is on the Knysna which is in front of me and you! THIS IS ABOUT THE DA EARNING GOOD SALARIES WHILST LYING TO US. That is the same as every single one of them saying, “Fuck you.” Yes, even you who will criticise me for swearing.
Our town is seriously in crisis and worse is on the way. We have to understand the financial situation of our town. We have to know what is happening with our lives so that we have some control over it!
