It was a cor­rec­tive mea­sure –Chief Gelane

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Inkhosatana Gelane confirmed hav­ing fired Umgijimi of Lawuba and said there is noth­ing sin­is­ter with the ex­er­cise be­cause it was done in the pres­ence of the com­mu­nity as a ret­ro­spec­tive jus­tice.

Inkhosatana fur­ther said there are a lot of things that were get­ting out of hand with Kunene, but said she can only con­firm the meet­ing to cor­rect the chal­lenges was held and tasks were given to peo­ple at com­mu­nity level.

She confirmed that the Umgijimi who has been re­lieved of his du­ties was not present and was re­placed.

She said com­mu­ni­ties are re­spon­si­ble for cor­rect­ing their peo­ple where they have made wrongs us­ing their own plat­forms, which in­cludes com­mu­nity meet­ings.

“It’s a plat­form to cor­rect wrongs and re­spon­si­ble peo­ple ac­cept when they are wrong and change their wrongs, es­pe­cially when they are en­trusted with com­mu­nity re­spon­si­bil­ity,” said the act­ing chief.

Inkhosatana said as a com­mu­nity, they would not want to hang their dirty linen in pub­lic but all their is­sues are cus­tom­ary solved as they are not try­ing to de­stroy peo­ple but make cor­rec­tive mea­sures in the com­mu­nity set-up.
