Parys municipality screws up again.

April 2, 2011 in Sonder kategorie

It seems like there is juts no end to the bad management and downright criminal negligence of the ANC controlled municipality of Parys.

This week our local newspaper reported on yet another sale in execution. Apparently an outstanding account for R7200 from Telkom was ignored several times leading to the sale in execution. A Nissan bakkie was sold for R4500 and a  “bossie kapper”, worth R20000 was sold for R3500.

 

During the previous year more than 20 such cases occurred, most of which was stopped just in time by payments to prevent the auctions. Eskom has also on several occasion tried to stop electricity supplies due to non payment.

 

It is also now widely known that vital electrical transformers cannot be bought as the suppliers refuse to do business with the municipality. Three transformers are allready damaged and all they do is to link to other transformers. This is a disaster waiting to happen, as the transformers and switchgear are also very old and will never be able to take the loads during winter time.

 

Blikskottel…knows that party politics in local government leads to disaster.
