Birds of A Feather Flock Together At Zululand District Municipality
24 October 2014.
The Qualified Audit received by the Zululand
District Municipality for 2012/2013 comes as no surprise to the IFP
in KwaZulu-Natal, who has been raising red flags about the goings on
in that district whilst still under the mayorship of Zanele
“The announcement of a qualified audit for
Zululand District Municipality by Finance MEC, Belinda Scott does
not surprise us as we have been raising many concerns relating to
maladministration, corruption and irregular expenditure in that
district. Our concerns were not taken seriously as the ANC wanted to
create the false impression that the NFP, which is a project of the
ANC, led by Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi is doing a good job. President
Zuma in his State of the Nation Address in June this year praised
the Zululand District for sound management and infrastructure
development but he ignored the rot that was festering below the
surface only to be exposed now,” said IFP Leader in the
KwaZulu-Natal Legislature, Mr Blessed Gwala MP.
“The financial mismanagement and
maladministration is affecting the lives of the people of Zululand
who are crying out for basic services. Funds are made available to
provide such services but they are squandered while our people suffer.
Since birds of a feather flock together, Mrs kaMagwaza-Msibi was
rewarded by the ANC with a Deputy Minister’s position thus enabling
her to run away from the mess she created while she was the mayor,”
said Mr Blessed Gwala.
“The people of Zululand are intelligent and are
able to see through the shenanigans in that district and they will
make the NFP pay in the local government elections in 2016,”
concluded Mr Gwala.
