Pretoria - The African National Congress (ANC) on Monday renewed accusations of corruption and maladministration against Tshwane Mayor Solly Msimanga.
"It is a blue lie from an incompetent corrupt DA [Democratic Alliance] executive mayor with misplaced ambitions to become the premier of Gauteng to say he didn't know about the appointment of GladAfrica and grand theft and corruption including rapacious maladministration," ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Kgosi Maepa said in Pretoria.
"The ANC Greater Tshwane council caucus is in possession of communication between the City Manager [Moeketsi Mosola] and the executive mayor, confirming discussions dating back as early as May 2017 where the city manager Mr Moeketsi Mosola shared information about the appointment of the Enterprise Project Management Unit (ePMU), that is GladAfrica, with the Executive Mayor Mr Solly “I don’t know, I am not aware” Msimanga and his mayoral committee."
Maepa said the controversial appointment of GladAfrica became an agenda item to the mayoral committee as a result of a query by the Auditor General.
He said the ANC was in a position to prove that Msimanga was "at the centre of the ePMU GladAfrica scandal" which has rocked South Africa's administrative capital.
