This week, i challenge the DA’s propaganda campaign against me.
This is my latest letter to the DA’s Eastern Region Manager, Jaco Londt. Most of you will be unaware that he is also our representative to Parliament (your failure to know such would be more his fault, a direct product of a government that operates without us).
He has long failed to correct the DA’s leaky Knysna ship, thus becoming part of the wrong crew, part of the problem.
But i must try every avenue repeatedly in the hope political alliances change and, if it fails, gather as much evidence for future court cases so that justice is eventually served.
Subject: Complaint against the Knysna DA – Immediate Action Sought
Date: Fri, 19 Feb 2016 14:08:55 +0200
From: Love Knysna – Mike
Organization: Love Knysna!
To: DA East Region – Jaco Londt <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Knysna Knews is the Facebook page which is being used by DA politicians to defame me and fulfill a questionable DA agenda. Foolishly and disrespectfully, it has insulted Parliament as well. This illegal negativity has spilled over onto other FB personal pages. Half the local DA caucus is implicated.
I give you an example:
Furthermore, here’s a recent blog of mine discussing an aspect of it:
I have so, so, so much more…. 5 years of evidence…
Besides hate speech, threats of violence and associating with a person i have a Protection order against, it’s been implied that i abuse children, sexually and for profit instead of charity.
I’m proud and thankful that the public supported me, stepping out of the fearful shadows your party has created. I’m hands on and work very hard for our town. The DA forgets that this is a small town – many of the public have witnessed this. Consequently, the latest disinformation against me righteously backfired in a big way.
I have already appealed to Speaker Eleanore Bouw-Spies regards a few councillors but she was illogically dismissive. Her reaction can only be interpreted as a failure of her Speaker duties as she bowed, unconstitutionally, to the DA’s interests first.
The DA has gained a false sense of security whilst allowing it’s representatives and cronies to repeatedly take me to court. I consider the DA immoral to state that it isn’t the DA when it’s by individuals in the DA for DA interests.
What you haven’t understood is that i’ve yet to begin my many cases which contain far more than what you could ever throw at me. Many of your representatives and constituents are involved and there will, eventually, be spectacular lawsuits. I’m in no rush because i understand how important it is to have the best cases possible for High Court (with a trial run, in a minor case, in the Lower Court). I intend an aspect to go to Constitutional Court, to use the DA’s bad actions to make the law of the country better defined, preventing political abuse.
However, next week, i intend exposing those involved and doing my best to gain media attention to it, through newspapers and on a radio program i’m scheduled to be interviewed on. These aren’t threats, just fact.
I’m not stating outright who it is because i don’t trust you. As far as i’m concerned, you and i stand on polar opposites regards what’s right and wrong, good and evil. So i’m testing you, giving you enough info (if you follow those links) to be very alarmed or pretend to be very alarmed, forced to act through morals or self-interest (you choose).
I contact you so that the DA has the opportunity to admit fault and demonstrate remorse through swift justice. I’d expect two councillors to be suspended quickly, and a DA constituent to join them in a DA disciplinary hearing which will reach result before you announce the candidate list next month. That isn’t blackmail – considering the evidence, that seems to be only the beginning of what should happen to them. Surely you should prosecute them too?
I contact you so that you have the opportunity to make the matter more expedient – that would benefit the public.
In my experience, the interests of Knysna don’t matter to the DA so it should be simultaneously noted that it would be in the interests of the DA’s image and in mitigation of inevitable legal consequences for you to be pro-active.
It’s common knowledge in the suburb of Brenton and in Knysna Municipality whose running Knysna Knews – our DA councillors are so foolish as to boast about defaming me. Although i would find it odd if you didn’t know, since you are the DA’s Eastern Regional Manager, i send you this email so that you are given a choice to act or not.
Additionally, especially as elections approach, politics is also about enemies within, so it wouldn’t surprise me to discover that the politicians who’ve done the most wrong are not fans of you, nor you of them.
You may choose not to respond or ineffectively respond, as has been your character, or to respond with legal or political rhetoric meant to delay… but i’ll be dismissive since you’ve already failed us, the people of Knysna.
There’ll be more revelations…
You may be making deals to hang onto the town, as you’ve incorrectly done in George, but you’ll also realise that here that isn’t guaranteed with the new ward demarcation.
I’m hoping that the DA will finally realise that it needs to stop banning honest and effective communication with me and other members of the concerned republic.
I’m hoping that the DA admits to itself that immediate high-level engagement is needed (none of Helen’s inner circle of “mediocre white men”, no MEC Alan Winde and MEC Anton Bredell as they’ve failed us badly and refused to accept responsibility for it).
Surely this is preferential to embarrassment and loss.
I support no party. I suggest these things because the reality is that the power and money of the major parties stifle independent voices. To that end, i will approach every party in case they help the exposure of what’s wrong here, what’s damaging our lives.
Will you make calls of discovery to relevant people today and have appropriate discussions with me this weekend.
This is scheduled to become an open letter this Sunday evening.
Thank you, in advance, for whatever motivates you to put Knysna first.
PS: Some of your members will be gunning for my arrest for contraventions of protection orders or contempt of court. Considering the evidence, i will eventually win but, more so, in the greater context, when every action of the DA is reviewed in a single application, i will easily prove conspiracy and it will all count against the DA i.e. the DA will not get away with individual actions representing it. That cowardice will be exposed.
