The ANC in the Western Cape is bracing itself for another battle with the DA, threatening to take its provincial leader to the Public Protector over alleged political interference.
However, the DA has welcomed this, claiming that it has nothing to hide and believes in the rule of law.
Cameron Dugmore, the ANC’s provincial leader, told the media on Thursday that the party had information detailing the alleged involvement of DA provincial leader Tertius Simmers in Kannaland municipal matters.
“Simmers’ insistence on appointing disgraced Keith Jordaan as acting municipal manager despite the fact that he was only the CFO in George confirms that the DA is not as clean as they claim.
The DA merely conceals corruption and wrongdoing “He made a charge.
“The fact that the Western Cape’s highest DA office is involved and insisting on Jordaan’s appointment confirms the DA’s and Simmers’ direct involvement in this matter.
If it looks like cadre deployment and sounds like cadre deployment, it must be.”
Dugmore stated that the ANC would file a complaint with the Public Protector against Simmers for potential violations of the Code of Ethics.
Jordaan, the former George Municipality’s chief financial officer, was fired for maladministration after investing nearly R300 million with Old Mutual.
