Durban - Auditors cannot do their jobs properly because the ANC in the eThekwini is withholding information highlighted in the Manase forensic report, the DA in KwaZulu-Natal said on Wednesday.

"The auditors told the executive committee that the deliberate hogging of forensic documentation by the ANC has hampered many of their investigations and they are unable to fully exercise the oversight role that comes with their line of work," eThekwini caucus leader Zwakele Mncwango said.

The Manase report deals with fraud and corruption in the eThekwini Municipality.

"The municipality has a legal obligation to give auditors access to all documents they require and this must be done immediately," Mncwango said.

The probe into the eThekwini municipality was instituted after Auditor General Terence Nombembe said in his 2009/10 report that it had irregularly spent R532m.

Accusations against a number of senior officials were made.

According to Nombembe's report, 10 councillors had business interests with entities conducting business with the municipality.

The eThekwini municipality could not be immediately reached for comment.
