AfriForum asks Parliament for stricter regulation of funds for municipalities

by in Media Statements on 15 April, 2015

AfriForum yesterday addressed the National Council for Provinces (NCOP) about the allocation of funds to municipalities and requested that funds be withheld if public participation processes regarding Integrated Development Plans (IDP) are not executed correctly, if the IDP’s do not adhere to legal regulations and if the plans are not visibly executable.

“It doesn’t help to withhold funds from municipalities because they fail to pay creditors, but the plan from which the budget flows is still insufficient. Such an approach treats the symptoms rather than the cause of the problem,” says Ivan Herselman, Risk and Legal Manager of Community Affairs for AfriForum.

AfriForum has started preparing further submissions to hand over to Parliament in an attempt to have these submissions placed on the National Agenda for consideration.
