Thankful for ruling in stray animal debacle
Yes, at last there is a judgment. Why must the ratepayer pay the costs of all these delays for this application?
Municipal manager Rolly Dumezweni and mayor Phindile Faxi could not care less how many times this court action is delayed, they are playing with the ratepayers’ money, through the municipality, which continues to be a feeding trough.
When are the law-abiding citizens going to protest and say “enough?”
When these judgments are passed down, surely the court knows where the money is coming from. Where is accountability? These individuals are happy to be earning fat salaries and it would seem they are getting away with using public funds like a casino.
Let the rule of law return to this malfunctioning and broke municipality, and keeping animals off the roads is a huge step in the right direction. Agri EC and the farmers who have fought long and hard to get a judgment must be thanked for their dogged determination. Ratepayers, wake up and smell the rot. Come on, people of Port Alfred, we need to organise someone or something to get rid of, or cull, our dassie problem.
One of these days there will be more dassies than people in Port Alfred. Why must we take out all our shrubs and plants and have only grass in our gardens in order to combat this problem of the dassies? I love my garden and enjoy seeing all the flowers, birds, bees and butterflies that make it my home.
I personally love nature, but the dassies are destroying it by denuding the trees and shrubs of leaves. They breed like flies and are destroying our bushland and vegetation. I won’t bore you with the damage they do if they get into your roof, causing more damage to your ceilings, etc.
A lot of homes in our lovely town belong to holidaymakers who are not here all the time, so who knows what destruction they see in their homes and gardens when they arrive for their holidays.
Something needs to be done.
