Johannesburg - The DA will make a Promotion of Access to Information Act (Paia) application to get a forensic report relating to the Lepelle-Nkumpi municipality in Limpopo.

The application would be to the Mayor Ivy Phaahla to access the outcome of a Gobodo forensic investigation, conducted between 2009 to 2010, into alleged tender irregularities worth over R50m DA Councillor Fani Tsela said on Thursday.

"We have been asking for the report to be debated in council and made public, but all our efforts have up to so far been barred and fruitless," Tsela said.

He said the investigation cost over R1.5m.

In terms of Paia the mayor had 30 days to respond to the DA's request.

According to its website, the municipality is the Capricorn region in a predominantly rural area south of Polokwane.

Comment was not immediately available from the municipality.
