HIGHVELD – The Govan Mbeki Municipality is under fire for their three-day strategic planning meeting held at a Badplaas resort last week.

Various organisations, including Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) and the Democratic Alliance (DA), have slammed the municipality for this and said the money should rather have been used for service delivery issues.

Outa called on the Mpumalanga provincial legislature to place the municipality under administration.
