Garden of lights a dark disgrace

Last weekend we read and heard horrendous reviews of patrons who bought tickets to and attended the festival of lights and some who even unsuccessfully attempted to attend this event.

As bad an experience the actual event was, the details emerging now is even worse and I believe our municipality has a duty to answer some very pertinent questions relating to, among other things the approval of this event and the insinuation of political interference by our executive mayor and possibly the municipal manager and/or a director overriding diligent officials who foresaw that this event was doomed to be a disaster.

An independent inquiry is to be launched to get to the bottom of this saga which many of those attending have simply branded a scam and to which the municipality on Sunday directly distanced itself from stating it was a private affair.

We need to know where things went wrong when we have officials who know what they are doing and what’s required of them and of event organisers to ensure successful events.

The Kieno Kammies interview on Radio Cape Talk paints a dangerous picture in terms of political interference.

We also would like to know who approved the Sunday Facebook post distancing the municipality and who subsequently instructed the post to be removed after the community became critical of the municipality’s view.

The mayor and the municipal manager let us down and damaged the name of our town as an excellent events destination.

Brother of darkness,
Stellenbosch
