IN DEFENCE OF OUDTSHOORN
Cameron Dugmore, the ANC’s leader in the Western Cape Legislature, has called for MEC Local Government Anton Bredell to be suspended. This comes after I exposed the recording of Bredell illegally using his ‘ministerial’ powers to try create a political win for the DA in Oudtshoorn. Bredell is also the DA’s Western Cape Chair.
Dugmore barked that he’ll go to the Public Protector but history shows that the DA has been fiercely protected by staff in her office. My earliest complaints, implicating Premier Alan Winde and Bredell, are now 7 years old even though the law states that allegations against MECs must be investigated within 30 days.
THE THREAT TO KNYSNA
The full article can be read in today’s Cape Argus or online here. I draw your attention to the ending which is about my home town of Knysna, currently under a COPE Mayor propped up by the ANC. They’ve also a lot to answer for but, as I’ve documented the past month, we came under under a seditious attack similar to Oudtshoorn’s. Whereas Oudtshoorn’s councillors rejected Bredell’s plot, it’s likely that Knysna’s councillors accepted.
The DA’s recent clandestine plan to take over Knysna failed. But they haven’t given up. Winde is now threatening legal action to force administration, which would dissolve the local Council and give his DA-led province control. And administration would fall under corrupt Bredell’s authority – he who once tried to give Knysna’s 30-year future to property developers via an illegal tender award.
Winde said: “I have written back to (Cameron Dugmore) we must have an open discussion on what happened in Knysna. We can have a political agreement with regards to administration or have a legal route – those are the two options which we have at our disposal when dealing with matters like this. He and I had this discussion about Knysna. Let’s not put double standards in this.”
Winde may also be pushing his hand because Parliament has made an initial query regards what’s happening in Knysna and Oudtshoorn.
The DA repeatedly fails to learn its lesson, or consider Public sentiment. It’s losing its blue, become more the orange of the National Party. Or maybe we’re seeing its true face.
