“People are frustrated. We cannot deny that our roads
will never be like the roads going to The Heads.
Money goes elsewhere.”
-Councillor Wiseman Litoli (September 25 2014)
Back in July this year i reported in ‘Priorities Disagreement Makes Special Development Meeting a Bust’ that a Special Planning, Development and Infrastructure Committee Meeting was called to discuss Knysna’s roads budget, a contentious and difficult issue considering the inadequate finances being received to fix our ailing infrastructure.
It was supposed to be a ‘Special’ meeting about roads yet roads had been removed from the agenda. Instead there were mostly developer’s plans for approval. The ANC’s Wiseman Litoli and Stephen de Vries objected, held a caucus to discuss it, and decided not to participate. Louisa Hart, the Chairperson of the committee, is instituting disciplinary action against them.
Have i said before that politics suck? Of course i have.
