Deputy Public Protector, Kevin Malunga, says their office had to subpoena municipal manager, Advocate Robert Tsupa, after a lack of cooperation from the municipality.
Malunga says they eventually had a lengthy session with Maluti-a-Phofung municipal officials Wednesday to discuss between 20 and 25 issues.
“One [complaint] that is creeping in very often is where councillors appoint people for public works type of programmes and a number of people are not paid their stipends. And there were a number of service delivery related issues, e.g. sewerage, water-related issues and electricity issues.”

He adds that a lot of the cases they have heard deal with vulnerable people who need to be paid by the municipality.
