Kouga workers remain on “go slow”

Black rubbish bags are piling up in da Gama Road Jeffreys Bay and the stench of sewage is hanging over Ocean View as municipal workers enter their second day of “go slow” due to the non payment of their pension fund contributions to the respective service providers.

Last week, the Democratic Alliance broke the startling news that pension fund contributions had been decucted from Kouga employees and not paid over to the pension funds.

An amount of over R 6 million is involved and was not tabled to council at the Finance Portfolio meeting and councillors were in the dark as to how much money was involved.

The DA first became awate of the problem in May last year and managed to gather enough proof to engage the authorities as well as the Auditor General.
