DA welcomes NCOP’s decision to terminate flawed Metsimaholo section 139 Intervention

SASOLBURG - The Democratic Alliance (DA) welcomes the decision by the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) Select Committee of COGTA, in its Tuesday, 8 June meeting of, to immediately terminate the section 139(1)(b) intervention by Free State MEC Nxangisa in the Metsimaholo municipality. The Party says this intervention was originally decided upon by the Free State Provincial Government’s Executive Committee (EXCO) on 11 February 2020 and was not ratified by the NCOP as required by the Constitution. The DA’s Leona Kleynhans says this means that the Department is now exposed to financial liabilities due to the fact that it had serious costs incurred.
