The ANC has expressed their support with investigating a vehicle tender deal with Afrirent worth R1 billion that is alleged to be linked to the EFF.
The ANC has said that the correct Municipal Finance Management and Procurement regulations were not followed by Johannesburg’s previous administration.
“We express our support in the recommendation that the City must institute a forensic investigation,” said ANC Johannesburg.
The contract with Afrirent has been declared as “irregular” and suggestions have been put forward to cancel it.
The ANC has reported in a statement that Mashaba’s leadership and DA/EFF led coalition must be held responsible and accountable for the alleged corruption.
“Must be held liable and accountable for the alleged corruption and maladministration that happened under their leadership.”
Recommendations by the ANC have been put forward that those responsible should welcome that criminal proceedings could be opened.
“We also recommend criminal proceedings be laid against those found to be responsible”
“We call for a complete forensic investigation into the entire fleet contract including Avis which we have reason to believe is also muddied in corruption,” said ANC Johannesburg
The city has been given 30 days to initiate a forensic investigation on the corruption allegations and to communicate transparently with progress reports in a way that residents can be informed.
