Bloemfontein water: Mlamleli can no longer hide

The FF Plus insists that the mayor of the Mangaung Metro Municipality, Olly Mlamleli, must be present when the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) conducts oversight next week in the Free State.

In a letter to the Free State whip of the NCOP’s Free State delegates, Itumeleng Ntsube, the FF Plus demands that Mlamleli herself must represent her municipality when the Metro renders its report.

The NCOP has a constitutional mandate and responsibility to conduct oversight over provincial and municipal matters. Thus, the mayor is constitutionally obligated to make herself available for the NCOP's oversight visit.

Mlamleli, who has failed to attend oversight meetings in the Free State Legislature in the past, cannot keep hiding.

Mangaung has serious service delivery problems for which Mlamleli and the ANC council simply do not have any solutions.

The ongoing dispute between the Metro and its water supplier, Bloemwater, is affecting paying residents who are being held hostage due to a lack of political accountability.

Oversight over Mangaung will only be meaningful if the mayor is present. The FF Plus will keep holding the ANC accountable and will keep fighting back against the ANC's lack of political will.
