ANC denies delinquent Centurion councillors claim

DA-councillor Anru Meyer has been redeployed to Olievenhoutbosch.

The ANC denied claims that two of their Olievenhoutbosch councillors have been drawing salaries without attending any metro meetings.

The councillors have also been accused of selling RDP houses illegally and failing to carry out their duties.

ANC chief whip Aaron Maluleka said any allegations levelled against councillors had to be reported to both the speaker of council and law enforcement agencies before any probe could be undertaken.

“Disciplinary measures against the said councillors will be enforced once proper proof is submitted and proper investigation processes are followed,” said Maluleka.

But Maluleka said he was aware of the whereabouts of the pair.

“One of the councillors has been off sick and we have received updates from the family about his condition.”

The other councillor was available and had attended council meetings “from time to time”.

“He was however attacked on numerous occasions and his family was threatened. We are providing support so that he can cope with his work.”

Maluleka also said the duo would remain in their positions unless damning evidence against them surfaced that necessitated their removal as council members.

“We have no reason to doubt the capacity of the offices of the speaker and chief whip to expedite any transgression probe against a sitting council member.”

Maluleka said he would encourage members of the public to use the whistle-blower platforms to report any criminal activity against any councillor or report them to the office of the chief whip of council.

Meanwhile, the DA has redeployed one of its proportional representative councillors Anru Meyer to work closely with Olievenhoutbosch community.

Meyer told Rekord he would not rest until the Olievenhoutbosch community had received the services they needed from government.

“The community needs our best efforts despite the current political instability in their areas,” said Meyer.
