MEC Turns A Blind Eye to Mpofana Municipal Mayor

25 July 2014.


The IFP in the KwaZulu Natal Legislature will write to the MEC of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Nomusa Dube-Ncube, questioning what action, if any, she has taken regarding the Mpofana Municipal Mayor who has been described by Municipal Councillors and community members as a “total failure”.


"Mpofana residents have been complaining about Mpofana Municipal Mayor, Ntombi Mpangase-Mchunu, for a while now, but there has been no action from MEC Dube-Ncube. Complaints have included allegations of laziness and spending most of her time on social networks instead of focussing on delivering services to the people," said IFP Spokesperson on Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Inkosi Mzamo Buthelezi, MPL.


"I intend raising this issue as a motion in the KZN Legislature and call for the immediate removal of the Mayor. This weak leadership by MEC Dube-Ncube yet again shows the hypocrisy of the ruling party. They claim that they want good governance but do not act in a manner to promote it," continued Inkosi Buthelezi.


"The IFP exists to serve the people of South Africa with integrity and we will stop at nothing to ensure that this purpose is achieved,” concluded Inkosi Buthelezi.
