Friday, February 4, 2011


Following our meeting on 24th January 2011 (see earlier post ) , the TATIB Foundation sent a letter (via email)  to Basil Davidson, requesting the minutes of the meeting . We had asked that Davidson furnish us with these by close of business on Friday 4th February 2011 - more than sufficient time for Stellenbosch Municipality to prepare these as we believe that Davidson taped the meeting with the aid of his I-Phone.

On 02 Feb, we sent Davidson a reminder email, asking him to confirm receipt of our emails and  to also give us confirmation that he intended to furnish us with the requested 'minutes'.  He responded in an email  " The contents of your e-mails 28/01/2011 are noted " , but gave no indication as to whether or not he intended to submit the minutes.

Our attorneys have,  in terms of  the Promotion of Access to Information Act (Act 2 of 2000) ("PAIA"), requested a number of documents  from Stellenbosch Municipality.  We will post the letter of request in here as soon as we have a copy if it, so please "watch this space" !

A story on what has happened,  appeared in Bolander Lifestyle and Property of 02 Feb 2011, reproduced here with kind permission of Cape Community Newspapers. Here too, Stellenbosch Municipality have refused to answer several questions put to them, in writing, by Norman McFarlane.
