The partitioning of the ground floor of the Madibeng Local Municipality offices has come up for scrutiny in documentation from national government.

It is alleged in the documentation, the contents of which were triggered by a whistle-blower, that the service provider was paid upfront, an amount in the region of R3-million.

According to the final annual budget of the Madibeng Local Municipality, published mid-year, an amount of R3,5-million has been allocated in this regard.

Further, it is alleged, the whistle-blower has brought it to the attention of national government that some people had been “targeted” for contracts, and had allegedly been in contact with the executive mayor.

Request for comment has since been dispatched to municipal spokesperson, Tumelo Tshabalala.
