The African National Congress in Limpopo says they will act on councillor who was arrested for violating lockdown regulations.
Councillor Jack Legodi was arrested together with five other people for allegedly having a party and playing loud music on Wednesday morning.
The Polokwane Magistrate’s court has granted the ward councillor and his co-accused a bail of R1000 each.
Provincial Spokesperson, Donald Selamolela says the ANC in Limpopo strongly condemns the councillor’s alleged conduct.
“We are very, very much disappointed and we want to condemn the conduct of the councillor in question. We want to assure our people that the ANC will be acting decisively on the conduct of that particular councillor in a very, very short space of time. We want to take this opportunity to continue to plead with people to make sure that they still stick to the lockdown regulations.”
The municipality spokesperson, Thipe Selala said they were still gathering facts in order for the matter to be decided by the Speaker.
The municipality is pursuing the matter with the police to get full facts.Once the facts are established and the report is forwarded to the Speaker of the council. The Speaker will follow due process in terms of the legislation that regulates council matters, including code of conduct of councillors. Now that the council cannot deal with the matter due to lockdown, the Speaker may refer the matter to the MEC of CoGTA.” Selala said.
