That is why we are collapsing - Pravin given explosive details

Political interference is costing Nelson Mandela Bay in a very unimaginable way. 

That is the bold voice that business leaders oozed when they spoke to a cabinet minister about the state of affairs.

Minister of enterprises minister Pravin Gordhan was in Gqeberha were he delivered a keynote address at the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber AGM.

Nelson Mandela Bay is currently under so much pressure as a day zero is looming.

A mass exodus by experienced status at the municipality has also cast poor service delivery in the spotlight  

Even Gordhan acknowledged in his address that those who had left the city had no inclination to return.

They do not intend to return to a failing institution and the pressure is now on the municipality to reclaim it's faded glory days. 

With the council in disarray and day zero fast approaching, the business chamber and some of its members have offered to provide expertise and resources to accelerate and support the management and control of leak repairs amid the ongoing water crisis, but there has been no urgency on the part of the municipality to take up the offer.

 “Political interference in administrative affairs now undermines the accountability of officials and paralysed administrative processes.

“There has been a failure to appoint appropriately skilled people to key positions," said Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber president Loyiso Dotwana.

He further added that the public had lost its faith in the city with residents and businesses showing little confidence to them.
