The African National Congress in the
Western Cape has alleged that the Democratic Alliance in the province has
failed to properly consulate in its MyCiti programme rollout in Atlantis.
The ANC is calling on the City of
Cape Town to not rush the implementation of this public transport programme to
consult widely with more affected stakeholders like the taxi drivers.
“ANC’s Yonela Diko said we do not
appreciate the fact that the Democratic Alliance in its implementation of this
MyCiti rollout, it presents it as a non-negotiable transport system that is
going to be saver in the city without even considering the key components of
democracy which is public participation”
There have been several complaints
that have been lodged in our office in Atlantis, by both the taxi association
and the community at large, but it cannot be forced and people have been living
longer than this MyCiti bus, Diko added.
