Mayor hits backs at ANC claims she is unfit to hold office

The ANC has accused Kouga mayor Elza van Lingen of being unfit to hold office and guilty of skipping crucial meetings.

But Van Lingen has hit back, calling the party devious because she took Mondays off for chemotherapy.

Van Lingen was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 but went into remission.

“I am being treated again, but that does not mean I am not able to work,” she said. “They know that I come to meetings.”

Van Lingen is busy with the municipality’s Integrated Development Plan (IDP) meetings in various wards.

“I will be in the council meeting on Thursday [tomorrow].

“They must stop with this, we are busy fixing the problems caused by the ANC in this municipality,” she said.
