ANC NW WELCOMES GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION IN LEKWA TEEMANE LOCAL MUNICIPALITY
10/04/2014
Dakota Legoete

The African National Congress in North West welcomes government intervention to restore peace and stability in the Lekwa Teemane Local Municipality, following protests in Boitumelong and Coverdale Townships near Bloemhof.

Following a visit by the ANC and government in Lekwa Teemane Local municipality, government led by the MEC for Local Government and Traditional Affairs, Cde Manketsi Tlhape, ensured that stability is restored and community concerns are immediately addressed.

To address the community concerns, government will appoint an audit firm to investigate allegations of corruption and maladministration levelled by the community and a report will be presented within six weeks to the community and that community leaders are constantly engaged on progress achieved.

The ANC has noted the call by the communities that the provincial government must invoke the provisions of Section 139 (1) C of the Constitution to the Municipality. As the ANC, we agree with government assessment that currently there are no reasons to believe that the municipality is at the verge of collapse.

We also agree with government that the process to demarcate Lekwa-Teemane Local Municipality under Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality requires a formal process to be handled by the Municipal Demarcation Board. Government must forward such a request to the Demarcation Board for consideration.

As vanguard of our revolution and the leader of society, the African National Congress will ensure that together with our communities we move South Africa forward and eliminate any forms of anarchy, lawlessness and political manoeuvrings.

We congratulate our law enforcement agencies for acting swiftly by restoring peace and stability in the area. They protected further damages to the private as well as public property.

We further call on our communities to work with the police to ensure that perpetrators responsible for crimes committed in the area are identified and arrested.

The ANC will ensure that at the completion of the intervention by government, community meetings are convened to give feedback on the ANC led government interventions and the way forward.
