Port Elizabeth - United Democratic Movement (UDM) leader Bantu Holomisa is demanding answers from Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor Athol Trollip as to why he "used" a PricewaterhouseCoopers report to tarnish the name of the UDM and its councillor and former deputy mayor Mongameli Bobani.
In May last year, Bobani was sacked as the mayoral committee member for health.
At the time, Trollip said the directorate had been concerned for a number of months given allegations of maladministration and impropriety. No specific reasons were given on how Bobani allegedly acted in bad faith.
This week, the Herald reported that a forensic report on a contract with Milongani Eco-Consulting failed to link Bobani to any wrongdoing. The PwC report has now shown how Milongani was a cash cow for R25.6-million of ratepayers’ money to be funnelled but Bobani was not named in the findings.
