In a continuation of his forensic overhaul of the city’s finances, Msimanga told EWN that his government would be looking into several agreements undertaking by the now-opposition ANC in the City of Tshwane.

In the last few weeks the new administration has laid corruption charges against ANC councillors who used to run the city, put a stop to a BMW contract the previous administration undertook with public funds, exposed close to R200 million worth of irregular and reckless expenditure on two major projects and announced that future tenders will no longer be handed out behind closed doors.

Msimanga now turns his attention to even bigger irregularities including:

  • A R3 billion smart meter tender
  • R380 million Wi-Fi contract
  • R300 million vehicle fleet contract and,
  •  a R200 million broadband contract

The City of Tshwane’s Matthew Gerstern told EWN that the tenders will be fine-combed for irregularities, corruption, kickbacks and to establish whether the city got its money’s worth. Mayor Msimanga would then take action in the form of renegotiating contracts or cancelling them altogether.
