Local councils can be a good form of reference to local needs. However, the local councillors must be selected from the community and their names must be advertised for at least one month for the community to object, in case there is, and such local councillor must also be easy to remove (upon receipt of objection/complaint from the community).

This is to avoid a certain politician or political group of controlling the local council or cronyism being practised.

The rampant abuse of power by elected representatives in our community has caused much concern and disrespect so much so that those trying to live an honest livelihood find it very difficult to make a living.
