Hon House Chair, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that Maria Rallele, who is an ANC ward councillor for Ward 27 in Soshanguve, Tshwane, has been engaging in fraudulent activities relating to the allocation of land and houses to the community;
2) further notes that this councillor has dismayed the community by giving houses and plots of land to people who are not registered with the Department of Human Settlements and on the housing list, and that most are people with whom she has very close relations or who have paid her; 3) acknowledges that corruption at local government level is a cancer that is eating at our society from the inside and preventing services from being delivered to our people;
4) further acknowledges that the ANC, through its active protection of characters like Cllr Rallele, is actively promoting the corruption that is so prevalent in our society, and that it encourages its local government leaders to be corrupt, as they can see that their national leaders are also corrupt; and
5) calls on the House to condemn acts of corruption, not only at local government level but also among the leaders in this House, some of whom deny their corrupt activities, even with 783 unresolved acts of corruption against them and the R243 million compound that was built with public money.
