Durban - An urgent meeting between uMlazi councillors, eThekwini ANC chief whip Nelly Nyanisa, and city manager Sipho Nzuza and his team to address the outsourcing of refuse removal services in uMlazi, was improper, say opposition parties.
The meeting, held at Nzuza’s office last Monday, was recorded and leaked to the media.
Opposition parties say the meeting was unethical as it discussed how people should be allocated jobs in the uMlazi programme, which is not the job of councillors.
In the recording, Nyanisa is heard telling all in attendance how the applications should be handled.
“You’ll put all the forms aside according to the list of the applicants. When we don’t find all of them, let’s say we don’t find 10%, then take all the forms and engage those people. We will open the window for those who felt they were left behind to apply in the meantime,” she says.
