The Democratic Alliance’s Knysna Mayor Eleanore Bouw-Spies has dragged me into what i consider to be her scandal. Who really said what, who really did what?
Are you part of social media gossip club or are you interested in what happened and thinking for yourself?
If you haven’t yet listened to the recording of our meeting, that’s your starting point.
You can blame them for the beginning being boring 🙂 but it will get to interesting discussion that will immediately put doubt on the Mayor’s press release against me.
For context, the Mayor did not offer me a meeting to discuss years of scandal and corruption involving the DA. She did not seem to offer a meeting so as to open honest dialogue between me and local government.
She seemed to only call for that meeting to try squash my questions why, without tender, the DA’s election campaign contractor, was given a R105,000 contract to run the Municipality’s communications department. I consider that an unnecessary R105,000 the public will be forced to pay for.
Take 50 minutes of the day to escape convenient gossiping. Listen to the recording of that meeting. Try understand our town.
I emphasise that – this is OUR TOWN. The politicians and municipal staff work for us. They might forget it sometimes but it always remains true. The most important part of government is us.
Please empower yourself by listening and thinking for yourself!
