Costly cat­tle crash should not be for ratepay­ers’ bill

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO PUBLIC COMMENTS -

With re­gards to the ar­ti­cle in your news­pa­per re­gard­ing the se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent caused by stray cat­tle, the mu­nic­i­pal man­ager and his staff should stop their sto­ries about not be­ing able to im­pound the cat­tle.

All they have to do is to charge the owner of the cat­tle R5 000 and en­sure that the fine is paid or at­tach his prop­erty.

But then the elec­tions are very near and they can­not af­ford to up­set the vot­ers.

When it comes to the farce of cut­ting the elec­tric­ity to the two clubs, who­ever went ahead and in­structed that the elec­tric­ity should be cut should be held re­spon­si­ble for this id­i­otic de­ci­sion and pay the le­gal fees out of his own pocket and not that of the ratepay­ers.
