IFP leader in the KwaZulu Natal Legislature,
Mr Blessed Gwala, today called upon the MEC for Co-operative
Governance and Traditional Affairs, Mrs Nomusa Dube-Ncube, to
urgently release the report on corruption in Mandeni Local
"Public funds are involved and it is alleged
that corruption is rampant but the MEC seems to be turning a
blind eye. It is time for MEC Dube-Ncube to act without fear or
favour to turn the financial fortunes of KZN municipalities
around," said IFP Leader in KwaZulu Natal Legislature, Mr
"We note that if Mandeni was an IFP-led
Municipality the MEC would have taken a resolution to dissolve
the municipality and appoint an administrator, but because this
is an ANC controlled municipality nothing has been done,"
continued Mr Gwala.
"In addition, I publicly call on MEC
Dube-Ncube to use her constitutional powers to take action
against all corrupt municipal officials. The IFP will continue
to demand the full disclosure of all municipal investigations in
all municipalities," concluded Mr Gwala.
