Mandela Bay Metro members in need of political reform to deal with issues: Expert – SABC News

Political scientist, Dr. Nkosinathi Breakfast, says the political parties in the Nelson Mandela Bay subway need political reform and an independent body to deal with political issues.

His comments come as Metro is once again upset, with former mayor Dr. Noxolo Nqwazi has been given a temporary injunction against the appointment of her successor, Lonwabo Ngoqo.

He was dismissed by a majority of mayors after an urgent proposal revoke Nqwazi’s appointment as mayor was put to the vote last week.

On Tuesday, videos of angry clashes also appeared among members of the coalition government after the court ruled in Nqwazi’s favor.

Dr. Breakfast says Metro residents need to provide services. “When you look at these coalition formations from the period 2016 to the present day, you would realize that they are unstable. There seems to be a lack of connection between these alliances, the provision of conflict management systems, the gap that needs to be bridged, the implementation of political reforms in the form of an independent organization.

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) on the Nelson Mandela Bay subway is concerned political climate in the region. PAC says that the coalition government needs to work and that political parties need to find each other rather than focus on the funds and resources of the municipality.

The leader of the PAC and MMC for Sports, Arts and Culture, Bassie Kamana, says that threats of violence cannot be tolerated.

His response comes in the wake of a video showing clashes between Good Party members and Mayor Eugene Johnson.

“The whole situation shames us as a PAC, let all countermeasures or bans end, it takes our focus away. “The latest incident is unacceptable, threats of violence can not be answered.”
