The DA Is Re-Instating Truman Prince As The Municipal Manager For The Central Karoo District Municipality

14 June 2007

Deputy Speaker, despite the DA`s constant so-called battle against corruption, that party is actively busy re-instating Truman Prince, as municipal manager of the Central Karroo District Municipality. Truman Prince was found guilty of the abuse of the mayoral fund to pay bail for a friend; the payment of performance bonus to himself without proper authorisation; false claims of accommodation expenses; and involvement with girl-child prostitution.

The DA has now aided and abetted Prince to succeed with a bogus appeal against all charges. The DA must walk the talk and not just grand stand on corruption. We call on the DA-led Central Karroo District Municipality, to provide a detailed public statement, on the process and reasons for the exoneration of Truman Prince on very serious charges. I thank you.
