Zero tolerance for bad leadership

Once every year the various stakeholders in the development of Cato Manor gather together to acknowledge the problems and the progress that has been achieved thus far. This year was no different except that there was more cause to celebrate because of the various projects that have been successfully delivered. These include the Dorothy Nyembe Multi-Purpose Centre in Cato Crest, the successful relocation of people in the North and South of Booth Road and the two schools that will open for the year 2001 session in Chesterville and Cato Crest respectively, as well as the empowerment of residents in various skills.

Cheers! Chairman of the CMCO, Dents Shangase, CMDA Deputy, Peter Robinson
and Chairperson Willies Mchunu, Dolane Msimango from the office of t he Deputy President,
Counsellor Mpume Chamane and CMDA CEO Clive Forster toast another year of delivery in Cato Manor.

The chairman of the CMDA Board of Directors, Willis Mchunu, also acknowledged that there were problems that needed urgent attention and that mechanisms were already in place to solve them. A sub-committee for the resolution of problems headed by himself has been established.

The committee will deal with the tensions and the disagreements that are evident in Cato Crest as a result of the land invasion and the invasion of the unfinished houses at the Greenfields housing project. The committee will also investigate the delays that are being experienced in Jamaica and the Nsimbini housing projects, and the nightmarish situation in the Old and New Dunbar settlements.

Also speaking at the occasion, Metro Mayor, Obed Mlaba, issued a stern warning to people who are seen to be frustrating the development project. The mayor told the gathering that the new Unicity will tolerate little nonsense from elected leadership and will also tolerate little nonsense from the administrators.

"Progress has been achieved despite deliberately made problems. If we are going to continue to be involved in the project we will not tolerate nonsense. People who have been frustrating the project must either move out or we will root them out ourselves. Leaders should make rules and live by them," he said.

Fast Track residents enjoy the year-end function hosted by CMDA.
