Tshwane Metro has reached a political cul de sac with no room for progress. The council has not even been able to unite on issues of service delivery. The case in point is the lack of provision of clean drinking water
to the people of Hammanskraal who are predominantly African working class that have been subjected to drinking water infested with worms.
The people of Tshwane deserve better than the raw deal they are now, they have now been subjected to. Therefore, let us allow them to take their destiny in their own hands. We support the dissolution in the interest of the people.
Finally, Chair, we need to dispel the myth that there are attempts to wrestle power. There are no attempts to wrestle power here. There is no outright winner in Tshwane. So, people should not behave as if they have control of Tshwane. The DA was given a favour. Finally, Chair, Amilcar Cabral says -
"Hide nothing from the masses of our people, tell no lies, expose lies whenever they are told, mask no difficulties, mistakes and failures."
So, Chair, we want to support the dissolution of Tshwane Municipality. [Interjections.]
