Why, in a South Africa we define as a democracy whilst waving a constitution, has there been a failure by you to label this as political madness that must be fought for the good health of decent citizens?
This is an urgent appeal for the Committee of Petitions & Executive Undertakings to commit to action regarding the Love Knysna petition that has detailed the Democratic Alliance’s gross abuse of power.
Since i appeared before you, the crisis in Knysna has deepened:
- Director Finance quit.
- Director Planning quit.
- Budget Manager suspended.
- Municipal Manager suspended.
- Twelve of the then nineteen councillors replaced, including six of the DA’s supposed winning team of ten.
Clean-up is afoot. The longer you delay, the more difficult to investigate.
I remain under attack by the DA and their cronies e.g. Councillor Dr. Martin Young emailed me this threat: “You seem not to realize that you are in no position to negotiate. I’m surprised you even tried. We hold all the cards, and have all the power to make your life really and truly miserable.”
She and Jaco allowed their candidate, Martin Young, who was threatening me and running a nasty propaganda campaign against me, to become a Knysna Councillor. They allowed Rowan Spies, the partner of the Knysna Mayor, to become an Eden councillor despite failing to investigate a disturbing forensic report about him that i’d provided.
I discovered that the Director Community Affairs Dawie Adonis is illegally appointed, earning a million a year with a Matric.
I discovered that the DA’s election contractor was illegally given the position of Communications Director without tender.
The DA’s response was Mayor Eleanore Bouw-Spies releasing a press release against me to discredit me. Simultaneously, another propaganda campaign was run against me, again labeling me as a sociopath whose a danger to children. I was banned from the Municipality’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
I had my fingerprints taken in the jail section of the Knysna SAPS last week. I appear in court for 2 cases on October 5. I await judgement in others. I consider these politically motivated.
DEAR PARLIAMENT, WHY NO ACTION?
It’s been almost 8 months months. The delay should never have been allowed as it was based on DA deception. I sent proof that they lied to the Committee. I sent follow-ups.
Why weren’t the Committee outraged at the injustice and disrespect?
Why did the Committee not respond?
Dear Parliament, do you want want our town further abused or me homeless, in jail or dead? What will make government pursue right over wrong?
Chairperson Thobejane, please respond.
