NEHAWU Western Cape Calls On Premier Winde To Withdraw His Planned Appointment Of Bonginkosi Madikizela As A Special Advisor

Tuesday February 22, 2022

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] in the Western Cape Province has learnt has with shock the decision of Premier Alan Winde to appoint the former MEC of Transport, Bonginkosi Madikizela as a Special Advisor.

The union is shocked because not so long ago, the same person who the Democratic Alliance [DA] intends to appoint as a special advisor was removed from the provincial cabinet for lying about his qualifications. This intended appointment confirms that DA does not walk the talk, because in many instances it has positioned itself as an organisation against fraudsters, but when the time comes for them to walk the talk they are found-wanting with their tails between the legs.

NEHAWU is perplexed as to what really Madikizela is supposedly going to advise the racist DA government more than teach its deployees on making fake CVs with non-existent qualifications. Even his so called experience is that of being at the helm of a transport department which was and is still viewed by workers as a home of sexual predators who sexually harass workers without any consequences as long as they are people of the DA.

Lastly, we call on Premier Winde to reverse his planned appointment of Mr. Bonginkosi Madikizela, or go ahead and prove to society that the DA is an immoral political organisation, which claims to be against cadre deployment in theory but in practice stands for it, and hence the appointment of a person who lied about his qualification as a Special Advisor.
