The IFP has made calls for an urgent investigation into the abuse of state resources by the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro municipality, which has spent R300 000 on ANC branded merchandise, including t-shirts, election posters and placards.
IFP spokesperson on Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, MP Peter Smith said “The municipality has a poor record of service delivery, with some residents, like those in Peace Village in KwaNobuhle, living with sewage pollution which the municipality has failed to fix it. If it was another political party, the ANC would have called for an investigation and called for the removal of those involved, but because it is an ANC led municipality they just turn a blind eye.”
Smith further stated that “This constitutes a direct looting of the municipality’s resources by the ANC. There is a clear violation of the Municipal Finance Management Act and other municipal laws. We cannot sit back and watch as ANC led municipalities are using state funds allocated for service delivery to fund ANC activities.”
