After a year in exile, I walked the streets of Knysna this past weekend. I was there for the business of politics and activism but it was wonderful to bump into kind people wherever I went.
The head office of the Hawks in Cape Town have opened an inquiry into my allegations of government corruption which mostly involves the Democratic Alliance. They met me in Knysna and will meet me again in Durban in September. Yes, DA Western Cape Leader Bonginkosi Madikizela, I have called your bluff on Cape Talk.
The Office of the Public Protector’s report to Parliament was sent on August 16. As expected, its a whitewash. My allegations against them will be proven true. Their own report damns them, foolishly clearing corruption already proven by the Auditor General or admitted by Knysna Municipality. Additionally, there’s zero mention of the DA which was only possible by ignoring thousands of pages of evidence and refusing to interview the likes of DA FedEx Chair James Selfe, Premier Helen Zille, MEC Anton Bredell, MEC Alan Winde, Councillor Peter Myers, ex-Mayor Eleanore Spies, Susan Campbell and many more – no interviews in 21 months.
To be so blatant makes it a stupid whitewash. Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane will have a lot to answer for her underlings, especially tri-province manager Stoffel Fourie and investigator Gideon Landman.
Mayor Mark Willemse and Councillor Peter Myers may pretend to be Knysna’s heroes fighting evil DA colleagues but the fact is they were complicit in corruption before they took over. There fight is for power, not for the Public blindly supporting them. But as the Western Cape DA has finalised the disciplinary committee’s guilty verdict, I expect these rebel buddies to fight back, dishing dirt on their colleagues after the past 3 months of silence. Information is good any way we can get it.
Willemse and Myers’ pseudo Knysna Politics Exposed Facebook page deleted my comments and temporarily banned me. The same day, the evil ACDP’s Western Cape Facebook page banned me. Candace Myers, wife of Peter Myers, deleted my comment asking her to ask her husband to issue a press release explaining exactly what caused them to take over Knysna and what’s happened since. The Knysna Ratepayers’ Association is another lie, a penis extension for a faction, not Knysna.
Forces realign but remain dark at heart. They’re obviously happier when I only question their enemies.
A suspended sentence and a protection order the DA obtained against me has expired but many more to go.
The next step is for Parliament to make a ruling on all the evidence in my Love Knysna Petition, an action plan forward. Today, I’ll submit an update to them as well as discredit the Public Protector. At the heart of the latter may be favouritism to the DA but it cannot be overlooked that the ex-manager of the Western Cape Public Protector was given a job in Zille’s office.
I don’t count on anyone because I don’t believe there are political parties, just power groupings shifting with selfish winds that blow far about us ants on earth. But I must keep hope. Maybe that’ll arrive from President Cyril Ramaphosa‘s side – someone has initiated contact.
