Municipal security queried

THE DA in Nelson Mandela Bay has raised concerns about municipal security officers’ ability to ensure the safety of councillors at council meetings.

This occurred after it emerged that then acting city manager Lineo Nkanjeni had instructed the city’s acting safety and security head, Shane Brown, not to provide extra security at a council meeting last July which was later stormed by about 150 protesting Uitenhage and Despatch workers.

The workers, who wanted to be paid the same as their Port Elizabeth counterparts in similar positions, refused to leave the council meeting until councillors approved the R17-million in back pay they were promised by a task team set up by mayor Ben Fihla.
