EMLM pours cold water on BPSA’s allegations of Mayor Mathebe’s part in food distribution process

NTWANE – Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality (EMLM) came out guns blazing on allegations of Mayor Julia Mathebe’s interference in the distribution of food parcels’ process in the local municipality’s ward 10.

EMLM Public Relations and Communications Manager, Simon Makua, said they took note of the damaging allegations that the local municipality, through its ward councilors, were issuing food parcels in favour and did not do so on merits.

Makua said they wanted to make the public aware that the process of food parcels registration was done solely, by local Community Development Workers (CDW)s coordinators, local public participation practitioners and traditional authorities, not ward councilors.

“There is no single family that will be deprived of their constitutional rights during this difficult time we are faced with as a country and we urge all community members that are in need of such interventions to contact their CDWs for further assistance and how to register and the criteria used,” said Makua.

Makua added that as a municipality they remained clear and more vigilant with the challenges faced by the people and that they were forever willing to help at all material costs as it was their duty to do so.

“In response to the allegations made by Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA) leader, Seun Mogotji, against the ward councillor of ward 10 and her collective ward committee members and the Mayor of Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality Cllr Julia Mathebe, we would like to categorically put it to record that the mayor knows her limitations and will never interfere with the business of the ward councillor in anyhow, irrespective of the ward she belongs to,” concluded Makua.

This after the BPSA issued a statement extending words of appreciation to Limpopo MEC for Education, Polly Boshielo, for assisting three struggling families in ward 10 of the local municipality in Ntwane Village.

The statement applauded MEC Boshielo’s assistance of the families that were, according to BPSA, “deliberately omitted from the 25 list of South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) for food parcels complied by the councillor, ward committee under the watch of the mayor without hesitation.”
