Monde-Ditsobotla issue continues

When is Monde Juta, former municipal manager of Madibeng Local Municipality returning to his position at the municipality?


Madibeng former municipal spokesperson, Sipho Nkosi, said at the time the Madibeng council released Juta to go and assist in Ditsobotla as per the request of the North-West Local Government and Human Settlement, MEC Collen Maine.


Acting director in public safety, fleet and facilities management, Energy Manaka was appointed as an acting municipal manager in Madibeng. Energy Manaka is still holding the position as the acting municipal manager at the municipality.


The special council meeting also resolved to replace councillor Lawrence Maluleke as MMC of Public Safety, Fleet and Facility Management . He was replaced by councillor Marcus Machete and Mataboge said the regional structure wanted Maluleke to be reinstated and all other deployment in the region halted.


It is alleged that the ANC in Bojanala want Monde Juta back to his position at the municipality. According to a source the regional secretary emphasised earlier on that officials in Madibeng and mayoral committee members [MMC] must be reinstated to create stability in the region.


Will it be a wise move by the ANC to change the municipal structure with regard to stability before the election next year? Shouldn’t all focus be on the election until the election date is announced to strengthen the election?


Are ANC mayors, speakers and chief whips in the Bojanala region up in arms in addressing issues of service delivery that had led to protests in places such as Moretele, Madibeng and Rustenburg municipalities?


Why is the ANC’s regional executive committee (REC) not resolving the Monde-Ditsobotla issue once and for all? The matter is not seating the entire community well. The challenge in Madibeng is water, and bringing real administration could ease the problem.


Simply changing managers does have an impact on service delivery because some of the officials and councillors are incompetent and cannot provide proper service delivery to the community.
