Political analyst Ongama Mtimka says local government in a state of paralysis.
Speaking on the Political Desk, Mtimka says municipalities are not managing finances well.
This follows the Auditor -General's report into local government which showed that irregular expenditure in municipalities amounted to over R28 billion.
Municipalities are not managing monies well and also performance information that is being reported on where municipalities would say they have performed in a certain way or achieved certain targets is not reliable.— Ongama Mtimka, Political Analyst
All of that points to me, to an institution that is really facing a deep crisis.— Ongama Mtimka, Political Analyst
Moving to the ANC, Mtimka says the party has been split since the December conference in Nasrec.
This comes after talks of a pro-Jacob Zuma lobby group forming a breakaway political party to split the ANC’s votes ahead of next year's general elections.
Apparently it believes Zuma was robbed of his presidential term.
The ANC has been split since the Nasrec conference. It's two broken pieces held together with a hope that they are going to mend at some stage.— Ongama Mtimka, Political Analyst
