De Lille blames ANC councillors
Cape Town mayor Patricia de Lille says ANC councillors were responsible for service-delivery protests because they failed to communicate the city's policies to their constituents.
But ANC councillor and youth league regional chairman Khaya Yozi retorted that councillors could not communicate to residents "when there is nothing for them [in the policies]".
"We are embarking only now on an integrated development plan process. There are forms we are encouraging our communities to fill in [with their] wishes, but the reality is that this process is just a lot of bull," he said.
"What happens is that portfolio committees, through the mayoral committee, change all those 'wishes', and the DA administration allocates budgets [for] what it wants. They do not take input from ANC councillors."
