The DA in Gauteng welcomes the decision by the Programming Committee for the DA’s Motion of No Confidence (MONC) to be debated in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) on 18 October 2022.
This is a step in the right direction, as the ANC’s attempts to dodge the motion have been unsuccessful, considering that the DA submitted it early last month.
The DA is not surprised by the sudden change of tune by the ANC, as they also want Makhura out. However, because of their internal fractions, they continue to speak in fork tongues, which has made them consider our MONC as the only solution to get rid of him.
Should the secret ballot be allowed, Makhura’s colleagues will also vote in favour of our MONC. We have already engaged different political parties; they have agreed to support our motion and we are certain of victory.
Premier Makhura continues to fail the residents of Gauteng, he is nowhere to be found while our people and businesses are struggling due to load shedding that is severely crippling the economy. There is no plan of action on how his government will deal with the current blackouts. Our people are suffering as our municipalities are struggling to ensure that their residents have access to uninterrupted water supply during load shedding.
The DA’s proposals to the current government to engage with the Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and not to be reliant on Eskom for electricity continues to be ignored.
Our people are tired of empty promises from this current government that does not prioritize service delivery. The only solution is to vote for a capable DA government that has demonstrated good governance, and accountability and continues to provide adequate service delivery in municipalities where we govern.
