The DA alleges that there was “a serious violation of tender procedures” that took place through a “network of political patronage” when the R90 million tender was awarded for the events management of the KDC.
Lekwene said that if anyone has any concrete proof of any wrongdoing they need to bring it to the department.
“We are firm on the issue that we will not tolerate any form of corruption. If anybody has proof, we are more than willing to engage with them,” Lekwene said at the official launch of the KDC on Friday.
The DA is alleging that the contract for the festival “powered by FISE” and HRA Trading is “unlawful and the tender needs to be re-advertised”.
