The Congress of South African Trade
Union in the North West said it
welcomes the decision of the African National Congress to remove the mayor and
the speaker of the Madibeng Municipality.
Cosatu however has expressed concern
over the new interim mayor and speaker who have been appointed and who come
from the same team that failed the municipality including being in the
forefront to disrupt the implementation of ministerial task team report.
Cosatu Provincial Secretary Solly
Phetoe said our view is that the municipality must give guidance in terms of
the instruction that comes from Luthuli House that they must implement the
ministerial task team no later then seven days.
Phetoe said the ministerial task
team is very clear on who must go and what must happen. One of the recommendations is that government
must deploy two officials from national government, local and two officials
from the province and one of these officials must be appointed as the mayor.
