ANC attemps to hide their failure to deliver in Buffalo City
In the face of crumbling infrastructure, they have decreased the capital project budget by 11,5% in order to save face at the end of the financial year. You will remember how BCM was criticized for only spending half of its capital budget last year.
Hundreds of millions of rands in housing grants are being returned to the Treasury as BCM is unable to spend them. I wonder how indigent voters would feel if they knew their government had the opportunity to build them homes but due to incompetence they are still living in shacks?
What will happen to the officials that failed to do their jobs? Likely nothing, as performance management is a swear word at BCM.
The Mid-Year Budget Adjustment is nothing more than a farce used to hide the ANC governments inability to govern.
