I don’t like Patricia de Lille – that doesn’t matter. I don’t know if she’s innocent or guilty but, practically, that also doesn’t matter. What matters is that the DA only seems to hypocritically pursue people when there’s a jostling inside the DA for power, when a faction has something to gain. They make us know that we, the Public, cannot rely on them, that we’re irrelevant to them whilst they involved in a power game we’re not invited to. I may call it a joke but it’s a very, very, very sick joke when the DA falls back on … ‘Click here to read full article…’
Do you want serious issues affecting your life to be heard in public? Do you want to be able to ask questions afterwards. Do you want the repeated scandals of Knysna to be put to rest? If so, help me encourage our Mayor of Transparency, Eleanore Bouw-Spies, to hold a public meeting. I previously posted a poll asking if you wanted more meetings between me and local government /or/ if you consider it a waste of time. Considering what’s happened, it’s more appropriate that i address the Mayor directly. That original poll never gained much attention, approximately 60 people voting over … ‘Click here to read full article…’
I challenge Mayor Eleonore Bouw-Spies to a public meeting this month to end 5 years of municipal & political lies; threats, corruption, maladministration, blockade & confusion Your words can’t claim honesty and transparency You have to show it through action! Knysna Mayor Eleonore-Bouw Spies, your election campaign promised better communication with the public. Instead, in your first month in office, you’ve become embroiled in the questionable appointment of the DA’s election consultant as the Municipality’s Manager of Communications. Despite having previously refused to communicate with me regards serious maladministration and corruption, you rushed a meeting to stop my questioning the … ‘Click here to read full article…’
333 emails still in my Inbox despite working very hard today to try catch up. Feeling very tired. No, that’s not a sign of giving up. Truth must win! I must win! Knysna must win! Politicians must lose!!! Will get my head together though i fear that the only way to exist, let alone get ahead, is to delete some intentions and mails with requests 🙁 I can’t be much on FB and my blogs much this week. Have too much work to do for the continuous court cases laid by the DA! So much to learn. So much money … ‘Click here to read full article…’
I only noticed it now. Over 11 000 words ago, i passed the half a million words mark on KnysnaKeep.org. That’s, roughly, the length of 5 Jonathan Kellerman books. It’s not the book i meant to write in Knysna but it is the ‘book’ that’s the most important now. This wasn’t my intention. There was no way that i could have imagined that it would take so long to bring the board of directors of Knysna Tourism to justice or that people would approach me with so many other issues along the way.'Click here to read full article...'
9 months ago, i wrote a letter to YOU, to every person who loves Knysna and wishes us all a safe future. If you never read it, or the subsequent 30 Ways to Help Knysna, i beg that you do so. Know where i stand. Know where i’m coming from. This current issue, that of Knysna Tourism/Greg Vogt/Lauren Waring, and YOUR RESPONSE & PHYSICAL ACTIONS, will decide whether i close down or continue. This issue, and whether we can act as a community, is the deciding factor for me. I’m prepared to face legal action or worse if there’s support … ‘Click here to read full article…’
All my websites, and FB page, are now paused. Like me, they await a decision on their ending or a new beginning. I want every effort to have meaning which is only possible with your help which is also you helping yourselves. I seek people who will work together towards a future for Knysna. You don’t need special skills, just the will and love to make a difference, to stand up and be counted. The true test is whether people will work together & stand together with their names for all to see. No hiding. Proudly standing! The request is … ‘Click here to read full article…’
From: Mike To: Mark Dixon Cc: Greg Vogt; Marion; Nan; Debbie; Georlene Wolmarans; Municipal Manager Sent: Tuesday, June 21, 2011 10:20 AM Subject: Re: Invite to discuss Knysna Tourism I am confused by your confusion. I mailed 5 members of the board 11 days ago. If none of those Board members were responsible enough to pass the email on to you, then your first question should have been to query them. Thereafter i did receive an email from Greg, in which you were CCied, and again CCied in my response…and still a meeting wasn’t set up. Additionally, why did Tourism’s … ‘Click here to read full article…’
