No impending arrests in Durban graft probe

2012-04-11 19:17
Durban - No arrests are imminent in a probe into fraud and corruption in the eThekwini municipality, the Hawks said on Wednesday.

The government's anti-corruption task team had also not yet opened a criminal case, said Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela.

The task team consisted of members of the Hawks, the SA Revenue Service, the Special Investigating Unit and the National Prosecuting Authority, he said.

"No case has been opened. I can say with certainty that there are no imminent arrests."

Polela was responding to a media report earlier this week quoting unnamed sources as saying arrests were imminent.

The findings of a forensic probe by auditors Manase and Associates into alleged fraud in the eThekwini municipality was released in February by co-operative governance MEC Nomusa Dube.

The investigation found numerous irregularities in the awarding of tenders and that councillors were involved in entities which did business with the municipality.

The full report has not been released and the Democratic Alliance has threatened to go to court if it is not.
