Wayile fired as mayor

11 March 2013
Nwabisa Makunga and Rochelle de Kock

NELSON Mandela Bay mayor Zanoxolo Wayile was given his marching orders by the ANC yesterday, just two days after the party’s regional boss, Nceba Faku, quit his post.

The ANC’s national top six, led by President Jacob Zuma and his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa, met Wayile and deputy mayor Nancy Sihlwayi at its provincial headquarters in Calata House in King William’s Town yesterday.

Both were immediately relieved of their duties, effectively putting an end to a two-year power struggle between the ANC and its deployees in the municipality.

ANC MP Ben Fihla, 81, will take over as mayor while deputy regional chairman Chippa Ngcolomba will come in as deputy mayor.

The decision could finally bring political stability in the Bay, or set off a revolt by ANC members who have for months fought the reshuffling of the city’s leadership.

We thought that the ANC had scraped the bottom of the barrel when it deployed Faku. But no, Wayile proved that wrong. Now another step further downhill : Octogenarian-Plus is in charge. And all the while the lights are going out, the water is toxic and people are forced to sh*t in buckets so that there is sufficient cash to ensure cadres can continue to live in luxury. Surely the most sycophantic Zuma/ANC supporter must see that we have to get rid of these idiots. Roll on elections!
