joburgcityANA reports that the Democratic Alliance (DA) on Sunday accused the African National Congress (ANC) of being on a mission "to loot" Johannesburg's coffers by reversing the insourcing of workers.  

DA Gauteng MPL Sergio Isa dos Santos said in a statement that they were not surprised by the ANC-led City’s administration’s intention to reverse the insourcing of security guards and cleaners.  He went on to note that the DA-led multiparty administration had insourced over 2,000 security guards and cleaners “so as to ensure their job security as well as their access to medical aid and pensions."  Also, the insourced employees were consequently earning a market-related salary.  "The ANC’s claim that the process was not done legally and that more people were employed than was initially on the books is not true. Furthermore, this action by the ANC administration once again highlights that they care little about the needs of those providing services to the municipality and are only interested in lining the pockets of cadres," Dos Santos stated.
