FTLM‘s council collapses once more

The South African Municipal Workers’s Union (Samwu)’s protests in the Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municpality is still continuing. Employees are still demanding the resignation of MM NP Busane, the acting CFO Frank Maredi as well as the director of corporate services Mafori Phasha.

During a council meeting held at Apel on Monday Samwu workers held placards demanding the resignation of Phasha. Samwu’s chairperson in Tubatse Collen Dlamini said that Phasha was illegally appointed.
“His application was done after the directorate for the corporate services was close, he’s also implementing wage curve which doesn’t have collective agreement, which is illegal to us.”
The Monday sitting collapsed yet again as opposition parties were dissatisfied with some resolutions that were tabled on the agenda.
The councillors were disputing the minutes of the previous council sitting. They say the minutes were fabricated.
“ There were no resolutions in our last meeting, the meeting collapsed. We are shocked to see some of the resolutions tabled here today. We want clarity from the secretary if he knows of the items jotted here,” Abigail Mogofe, EFF Cllr questioned.

The failure from the council secretary to clarify the validity of the minutes resulted in the ANC and EFF councillors attacking each other and the meeting collapsing again.

Sanco’s Jackson Tjatji said the disruptions in the council were affecting ordinary people.

“People are in need of services while councillors are busy pushing and shoving each other. Our municipality has been closed for three weeks now. We cannot pay tariffs, and we cannot access residential letters. We plead with the mayor and councillors to resign with immediate effect. ”
