The Inkatha Freedom Party is shocked that the MEC for COGTA and the KZN Cabinet have decided to dissolve the Nqutu Municipal Council and has called for new elections to take place.
“As the IFP we are surprised that the MEC for COGTA and the KZN Cabinet have taken such a decision because since the first council meeting the ANC has been the cause of disruptions of all meetings convened to inaugurate the Nqutu Council. We will go to the polls kicking and screaming and we will contest the elections since we have no other option.
I am surprised that the ANC chose to ignore the letter I wrote to the ANC Provincial Chairperson, Mr Sihle Zikalala wherein I suggested that we meet in a five-a-side to discuss the impasse and find a more reasonable solution. It is obvious that the ANC has chosen to implement a decision that it had taken a long time ago.
This impasse is not about Nqutu but about the R90million water services tender in the Umzinyathi District Municipality about which a decision has been already been taken on who it will be awarded to.
