Durban - Being a municipal official doesn’t absolve eThekwini city manager Sipho Nzuza from accounting for all the questionable and irregular contracts that bear his signature, opposition parties in the council said on Tuesday.
This comes after the announcement by the ANC provincial leadership of the total overhaul of the eThekwini and Msunduzi municipal executive committees.
The provincial leadership is dealing with the issue of replacing the fired ANC councillors in the municipalities on Wednesday.
Nicole Graham, DA caucus leader in eThekwini said: “The Anti-Fraud and Anti-Corruption policy indicates certain processes that are meant to be followed in terms of how the City Integrity and Investigative Unit (CIIU) reports are meant to be handled. Our big issue at the moment is that we don’t believe that there has been proper consequence management and accountability for those who have done wrong.
“Nzuza definitely has a lot to answer for and everyone who has been involved in propping up the regime of Zandile Gumede needs to go.”
