“Any serious minded South African should be looking for an alternative party to replace the “non-performing” ANC administrations at municipal level. People are now fed up with poor service delivery and will not continue to vote for the ANC at local government level. Voters now see the ANC led municipalities as a government bereft of ideas, a government bereft of policies and a government bereft of credibility,” said IFP National Chairperson, Mr Blessed Gwala.
“We need a government that will improve the lives of our citizens in municipalities. The load-shedding that we find ourselves in today is avoidable. We should not be in this situation because of bad governance; this situation is uncalled for. Corruption involving the award of tenders is rife under the ANC-led municipalities. This scourge must be eradicated,” concluded Mr Gwala.
The IFP would like to advise all the South Africans to be mindful of who they vote for during the local government elections since a wrong choice of candidates will have dire consequences for the entire municipality for the next five years.
