Municipality Executive Mayor Caught Sleeping On The Job

Is sleeping on the job a criminal offence especially for political office holders? And what if the offender is tired and worn out from work stress as might be the case of Sol Plaatje Municipality Executive Mayor Patrick Mabilo?

Amidst a worsening service delivery crisis in Kimberley, a photo of Sol Plaatje Municipality Executive Mayor Patrick Mabilo has surfaced on social media further fueling calls for his immediate resignation, says news report by the Northern Cape TV.

In the picture which has gone viral on social media, the mayor is seen in a bakkie-like vehicle wearing what looks like work overall. Perhaps, the mayor was sleeping having been worked hard to fix many challenges he is facing with leading the municipality.

The Sol Plaatje Municipality has been embroiled with service delivery crisis and outcry from the community since beginning of this year. The municipality is facing a number of challenges including flooding, water interruptions, sewer spillages, street/high Mast, lights, illegal dumping, potholes and refuse collection.

According to a news report by Independent Online News, late last year President Cyril Ramaphosa publicly reprimanded mayor Patrick Mabilo and ordered him to do something about the unacceptable situation of housing and roads problems in the municipality.

Following the president’s public rebuke, the Sol Plaatje Local Municipality has been slated for waiting for President Cyril Ramaphosa’s intervention to make land available to build houses for a family of 42 crammed into one dwelling.

It was the family of a Kimberley resident Lydia Kok whose was living in abject inhumane living conditions with her extended family of 42 members comprising the elderly, children and disabled members crammed into her three-roomed dwelling.

Reacting to the housing conditions of the family, President Ramaphosa said “This is unacceptable by any account. No, no, this can’t happen. The roads are terrible, the roads are very bad.”
