AfriForum Youth to probe Malema

Johannesburg - AfriForum Youth will be launching an independent investigation into the municipal tenders awarded to the company that ANCYL president Julius Malema was involved in, the organisation said on Tuesday.

"Malema plays a senior role in the ruling party and that the awarding of municipal tenders to a company of which he is a director, is unethical, irrespective of what the Public Protector or any law may say in this regard", spokesperson Ernst Roets said.

Roets said the organisation decided to launch their own investigation after the Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, said on Monday nothing could be found amiss with the Malema tenders.

Madonsela said she could not find any irregularities in the company, SGL Engineering Projects. Malema was involved in this company until November 2009, but earlier claimed he had resigned all directorships when he assumed the presidency of the ANCYL in 2008.

She said all the tender documentation of six of the municipalities investigated had not been up to date, saying there was "no verifiable information or evidence" that the tenders were awarded to the company through "improper influence, comradeship, nepotism, political affiliations, or any other impropriety".

One of the contracts was awarded to SGL by the Makhado Local Municipality, four were awarded to the company by the Greater Sekhukhune District Municipality and one by the Lepelle-Nkumpi Local Municipality.

Roets said AfriForum Youth would be studying the Public Protectors report and investigate the matter further.

"If this investigation were to find that no irregularities occurred, we will accept this," he said.
