Agreed with beachcomber. The only reason the DA stays in power here is that their voters are afraid of the alternatives. Look at the PR disaster re their handling of the baboon issues.

We are and have been conscientious ratepayers to the CoCT for decades and their self-serving attitude to the most basic of services and complaints seems to be curated by the likes of the equally self-serving Tony Leon who's company seems to have done very well out of the water crisis.

There also seems to be a cabal of secretive cadres of the DA ilk running the City and the DA has most definitely lost my vote.

Well-paid jobs for life ....
