Johannesburg - The DA in Mpumalanga has called on the public works MEC to co-operate on the tender review process ordered by the court for Pilgrim's Rest, the party said on Monday.

"The DA calls on... MEC Dikeledi Mahlangu as well as department head Kgopane Mohlasedi to fully co-operate with legal proceedings relating to Pilgrim's Rest," Democratic Alliance MP Anthony Benadie said in a statement.

On July 25, the North Gauteng High Court ruled in favour of 13 business owners based in Pilgrim's Rest who applied for an urgent interdict preventing their eviction from their places of business by July 31.

The court granted the interim interdict and gave the applicants 31 days to launch a tender review application, from the date of receipt of all the necessary documentation from the department.

"The DA sincerely hopes that Mahlangu and departmental officials will fully comply with this ruling, and hand over all documentation pertaining to the matter sooner rather than later," said Benadie.

He said that department should not wilfully delay the review application by withholding information.
