Pretoria - After being dared in council to lay corruption charges against former ANC office bearers, Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga did just that.
He laid the charges against three high-ranking officials of the Ramokgopa administration at the Brooklyn police station on Wednesday, among them political office-bearers and an administrator.
The charges were based on a forensic report regarding the refurbishments of the Pretoria City Hall as well as the official residence of the mayor.
Both projects cost the municipality a combined R190 million and involved the same three officials, who served in the previous local government.
They cannot be named because they are now suspects in a corruption case.
