I reside in a retirement home in Dinwiddie. We have a major electricial problem at complex. Electric gate to carport area not working and a residents vehicle was stolen out of parking during night of 5/6 September 2019. Lights on passage ways, stairwells fireescapes garden are out when electricians come they just replace florescent tubes and go. The more i tell the Human Settlements manager the more they make me out to be an idiot. I would like to have my rental sent via email and wzs told they can't do it as accounts are done by outside company. Post delivery is totally unacceptable. They must get rid of all employees and employ people that have a passion for their jobs. Time for a change in Munic. As they are beyond hopeless.

All Current senior management and ministers responsible including the President in Charge of SA , that are running the show need to be put on notice officially that they ARE held responsible and accountable. They need to be brought to book legally and monies recovered from them from Bonuses/shares/pension/etc that they may be entitled to , should they fail in performing their duties. a KPI target of 1%( or similar single digit %) of current open or logged incidents per service area, should be made their target acceptable KPI criteria within each quarter. if they dont action and reduce the outstanding incident ethically then they should not be entitled to hold down their jobs. and they should do this ethically , and not by devious means, like making it difficult to log incidents/etc . they must ensure uptime of fault logging facilities 24/7. even the current President should be help accountable for non delivery to a certain % of his remuneration for non delivery.
This needs to be expedited.

This utter raping of the taxpaying citizens of South Africa for incompetent people being placed in positions of Responsibility with no recourse or accountability, needs to come to an end. Period.

1. The municipality is top heavy with managers and light with workers. This is probably why they keep running out of operating funds.
2. It is obvious that nobody thought about the maintenance required to maintain the complex high maintenance lifting equipment being fitted to the trucks. They obviously were also not aware that because of the complexities of the equipment, 20% of their fleet would be out of service for maintenance at any one time. The technical requirement for this would seem to be above the capabilities of their BEE staff.
2.The municipality should stop spending residents money on bursaries and concentrate on the services they should be supplying to their communities.
3. I would also suggest that they purchase the correct quality of vehicles for there police force and stop the practice of allowing police to take ownership of their vehicles. Can someone please explain why our traffic police require 4x4 vehicles at R500000-00 each rather than other police force around the world who use medium priced vehicles at R250000-00. I could go on and on about the incompetent management at Ekuthuleni but it would just fall on the deaf ears of the ruling ANC elite.
