Quality Filtration Services (QFS) is dragging the City to court, seeking over R20million in damages after contractual disputes.
The director of QFS, Musa Ndlovu, said: “In response to our papers submitted to the high court in July, the City of Cape Town responded with a plea on August 12.
"As you know, the City and QFS did participate in mediation earlier this year, but were not able to reach an agreement. The City should give their response to this,” Ndlovu said.
The company intends to sue the City for the outstanding amount of R20m, as well as the damages incurred during the 13 months of the dispute.
