ANC scorns ‘plagiarised’ budget plan

Councillors say draft brings nothing new

The biggest portion of the budget could go towards the Assistance to the Poor Programme, which is in line to receive R543-million. Some of items in the draft budget include: ý Housing delivery being allocated R683-million;

  • Electricity and infrastructure being allocated R361-million;
  • The Integrated Public Transport System being allocated R382-million;
  • Wastewater treatment works being allocated R354-million; and
  • R96-million being allocated for the construction of roads.
ANC councillor Rory Riordan said the draft budget was merely a duplication of the ANC’s ideas when they led the administration.

He labelled the document as disgraceful and said it was plagiarised.

“The DA never had a plan but borrowed from [former mayor] Danny Jordaan,” he said.
