We, the undersigned citisens from Drakenstein, have composed this letter to express our dissatisfaction with the current counselor in possession of Housing and Human Settlement portfolio, Lorraine Cyster.

This letter is an expression of our “Vote of No Confidence” in Mrs. Cyster and her ability to run our ward nor the h
Housing and human settlement portfolio. We understand the severity of this decision and did not arrive at it hastily.

Throughout the past few years there have been many complaints and concerns regarding Mrs. Cyster's leadership specifically regarding trust, collaboration, decision making, vision, her lack of respect for our people and communication. We also believe that Mrs. Cyster has failed to abide by her mission statement.

She has not delivered any service nor implemented new skills training programs, sport and recreational activities, youth program or a safer environment, but instead has created a toxic environment for everyone living in Drakenstein. Without the recognition of mistakes or the willingness to listen to the people of Ward 29 or Drakenstein as a whole, there is no hope for our people or improvement and thus no way forward.

We feel she has a lack of attention to, preparation for, or appropriate prioritizing of, Drakenstein requirements and interests of our entire community and have to be stripped from her title.

We feel she has inconsistency in application of rules and an ongoing lack of respect toward many of the older citizens. A portfolio nor a ward cannot be run successful with a one way avenue of communication. Even when input is sought, there is a failure to follow through or a total disregard for the ideas of many, when communication occurs, it is too often delayed and incomplete. There's just an overall feeling of us as the people of Drakenstein losing ground all the time. We need a different, more solid leadership. The moral is just too low and feel it is time for a change.

For these reasons stated, we the undersigned are voting “No Confidence” in Mrs. Cyster and hope and believe that you as a leader and role model will make the right decision and chose what is in the best interest for the citizens of Drakenstein.

Regards,
Citizens of Drakenstein
