EFF’s Response to Polokwane’s State of the City Address

The state of the city address did not amuse the Economic freedom fighters (EFF) in Limpopo. According to EFF, the ANC municipality mayor is not competent to deliver services to the people of Polokwane. The EFF wants the municipality to insource workers and buy local materials to create employment opportunities. The EFF wants the projects that have stalled, for example, water reticulation and borehole projects to be completed.

To ensure everyone benefits from the municipality projects, the EFF wants the mayor to be fair. The mayor should upgrade or extend all the roads and not just focus on where he comes from. It is not fair for the mayor to extend the road from Mankweng to Boyne, disregarding the Aganang, Moletjie, and Seshego routes! EFF raised concerns about corruption and nepotism in the municipality. When it comes to the sewerage system, electricity, and housing, the mayor is only playing politics instead of helping the residents of Polokwane. According to EFF, it is clear that the mayor is only politicking instead of creating employment opportunities and changing people’s lives.
