We’re not against ANC, but we are against corruption, these are the words uttered by Midvaal Municipality’s mayoral-candidate, Bongani Baloyi during DA-leader Mmusi Maimane’s visit in Lakeside Estate on Tuesday morning.

Baloyi said he was concerned about ‘some leaders’ whom he labelled as fly-by-night by hiring people during the night to work in government entities.

He claimed that other political leaders abuse their power by hiring only their friends and family members.

“You know our situation here. You know those who are in charge are involved in corruption. No one will come here and launch projects without my presence,”
“If they call meetings you must attend and stop those meetings,” Baloyi insisted.

According to him there are those who utilises government resources to enrich themselves while other addresses the residents wearing political regalia.

Maimane echoed Baloyi sentiments by saying there is no corruption in Midvaal unlike other other Gauteng municipalities.

“In Midvaal we don’t tolerate corruption irrespective of the position one holds. We don’t deploy but we fire those who are corrupt,” he concluded.
