DA members and opposition parties still waiting for news Community Safety MEC

Nearly three months since Albert Fritz was suspended Premier Alan Winde has yet to appoint a permanent Community Safety MEC.

Although MEC Anroux Marais has been a temporary act in the position, community activists and opposition politicians are starting to get restless, while there’s been a lot of speculation about who will be the next appointed.

Spokesperson for the premier, Odette Cason, said: “The premier is applying his mind to the vacancy that exists in his cabinet. He intends to make this appointment soon, and we will communicate the decision when it is made.”

EFF provincial chairperson Melikhaya Xego believes that the post would go to DA MPL Dan Plato, after he had the job between June 2011 and October 2018.

Khayelitsha CPF member Francina Lukas said: “We call on the premier to appoint an MEC as soon as possible.
