Pretoria - Tshwane mayor Stevens Mokgalapa has announced that the controversial GladAfrica contract will be terminated in June.
The contract was effected by the City of Tshwane in November 2017 with a view to receive assistance in the roll-out of infrastructure projects valued at R12 billion.
Last month the Auditor-General made adverse findings against the awarding of the contract, declaring it to be irregular.
Mokgalapa said the decision to can the contract followed a mutual agreement between the City of Tshwane and the engineering consultancy firm GladAfrica.
He said the contract has cost the city an amount of R495 million since its inception in November 2017 to 20 February this year.
