Your solution is incredibly naive. Let us say that IBM is the best provider of widgets. The city needs widgets. Must it not get widgets from IBM because the manager in charge of sourcing widgets is friends with the director of IBM?

No, he documents the requirements of the city and the guidelines for procurement, documents his conflict of interest, and makes the best decision for the city. For each rejected service provider, he documents why they were not selected.

Should the manager with the best knowledge of widgets recuse himself because of his relationship? No - remember he is not a judge. He can recuse himself, if he wants to, but that is not always possible. Mashaba for instance probably sometimes cannot recuse himself - because no one else in the world will have the same legal authority that he does.

Yeah, maturity. You give a knee jerk reaction saying that personal conflicts of interest must be avoided at all cost - something clearly impossible. The solution, according to what I have studied, is called fair dealing, where no client is given special treatment. Either favourable special treatment or unfavourable special treatment. Everyone must be treated equally.
Calls me naïve and gives an example that reeks of naïve. :crylaugh: You should really move out of Lala Land.

City of Joburg finalising next phases of staff insourcing – Mashaba
The City of Johannesburg is finalising the insourcing of the remaining security guards and cleaning services staff in line with its May 2017 commitment to insource these services, mayor Herman Mashaba said on Sunday.

In 2018, 2800 security guards at various city departments were insourced. In this process the city was able to increase their take-home pay by a minimum of 50 percent, while offering them employee benefits, stable employment, and containing the city’s escalating security costs, Mashaba said in a statement

Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba will on Wednesday mark May Day by welcoming almost 1,000 security guards insourced by the City of Johannesburg. The addition of these security guards, who are currently contracted by the City’s municipal entities, brings the total number of security guards insourced to around 3,700 since Mashaba took office towards the end of 2016.

In a statement before the official ceremony, Mashaba said the City’s multi-party government led by the Democratic Alliance (DA) was committed to bringing changes to residents, and especially to those that commit to ensuring the safety of others.

City of Joburg to put cleaners on its books – Mashaba

The City of Johannesburg will be insourcing, or directly hiring 1,879 cleaners, starting with 450 who will go on the metropolitan municipality’s books, a statement from Mayor Herman Mashaba’s office said on Thursday. “These cleaners previously earned a mere R3,000 per month, while the City paid around R6,500 per cleaner to the outsourced companies they worked for,” said Mashaba.

“These cleaners will now be able to take home more than R4,000 per month after deductions from a salary of around R5,600.”
Their perks will include a pension and medical aid. Mashaba regarded this as a death knell for “tenderpreneurs”, and a way of empowering women who have not been on the council’s books for years.

Is insourcing a thing now again?

I thought outsourcing was to save money? Or was the beancounters all wrong?

The EFF want it done so their minion Mashaba obliges to keep the anarchists happy. They don't like to interrupt their champagne fuel orgies to have to deal with him.

Is the DA opposed to it?

Shivambu congratulates Mashaba for working with EFF on insourcing of cleaners
At an event on Saturday, City of Johannesburg mayor Herman Mashaba announced the planned insourcing of over 1,800 cleaners. Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Floyd Shivambu voiced his approval over the move on Twitter. The City’s programme was reportedly devised through engagements with the EFF.

“Well done to the [EFF] Caucus in Johannesburg and Executive Mayor [Herman Mashaba] for insourcing cleaners for the City of Johannesburg. This is a true honour to mostly mothers who are the cornerstones of our lives. It’s steps in the right direction!” Shivambu wrote.

Looks like a good move. Workers get more protection and better pay.

Good move until they strike or their pay becomes unsustainable. One more reason not to vote DA.

Does juju know about this?
He is a fan of Mashaba as well, odd how they did not like him and called him names when he was first proposed as DA mayor in JHB.
“Maybe Mashaba is teaching us something, maybe in future we may want to have that discussion. Maybe our problems don’t need politicians, because Mashaba is not a politician, he doesn’t take political attitude. He looks at [something and says] 'can it really work, can we try it?' Even if it comes from enemy camp. Maybe it needs these people, that type of attitude, it helps,” said Malema who has consistently lauded Mashaba’s leadership in the city.
Straight from mouth of the Commander, you must really be doing something good to get praise from the EFF.
