Merging Opposed

20 Aug 2015
 

Potchefstroom – Any move to merge the Tlokwe (Potchefstroom) and Ventersdorp municipalities will be opposed, by the Democratic Alliance.
Joe McGluwa, the DA’s provincial leader, said on Wednesday, 12 August 2015, the struggling Ventersdorp will be a burden on Potchefstroom’s rate payers. The proposed merger is politically motivated and aimed at preventing the DA from getting a majority in Potchefstroom during next year’s municipal elections.
McGluwa said the ANC had stripped Ventersdorp. Almost nobody is paying rates and taxes and the municipality has no cash reserves and outstanding debt of R40 million. Any move to merge the two municipalities will therefore be opposed through all legal means.
According to him, all indications are that the DA will win Potchefstroom in the election. The DA will stop the ANC from getting half the votes and will take control of the municipality once again. Two years ago, in 2013, a DA-led coalitionunder mayorship of Prof Annette Combrinkcontrolled Tlokwe Municipality for seven months after certain ANC councillors had voted out MaphetleMaphetle, the former mayor, by a vote of no confidence. McGluwa said the DA is known for clean governance and there were positive changes while they were in charge in Potchefstroom.
The redetermination of municipal boundaries – which include merging some municipalities – is the result of a proposal by PravinGordhan, Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs as a third of municipalities are not financially viable and another third at risk.
