IFP eThekwini caucus leader, Cllr Mdu Nkosi,
has expressed concern regarding the unfair allocation of PR
Councillors tickets for the yearly senior citizens events taking
place for the festive season.
To allay their concern in this regard Cllr Mdu
Nkosi on behalf of the IFP eThekwini caucus wrote a letter to
the eThekwini Municipality Speaker, Cllr Logie Naidoo, on the
13th November 2013. To date, no response has been received.
"As the IFP eThekwini caucus, we are highly
disturbed by this lack of transparency and accountability as it
is alleged that ANC PR Councillors have received 100 tickets,
whilst the IFP has not received any at all to these very
important events for our senior citizens," Nkosi said.
Another allegation is that some of the non-ANC
PR Ward Councillors are getting 300 to 400 tickets, while the
standing allocation is 600 tickets for each ward.
The IFP demands that this matter be urgently
investigated and are awaiting a speedy response from Cllr Logie
Naidoo in this regard.
