Madonsela report 'to blast DA’s Midvaal'

2011-11-06 21:15
Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is preparing to release a shocking report this week that reveals serious irregularities and maladministration in the DA-controlled Midvaal municipality.

City Press has learned that the report - scheduled to be released on Tuesday - focuses largely on the actions of
Andre Odendaal, the party’s chair in Midvaal and lawyer for the council.

At the same time, the special investigating unit (SIU) is making progress with its corruption probe in Midvaal and has identified six problem areas.

According to SIU spokesperson Marika Muller, corruption and fraud could have negatively affected service delivery in Midvaal.

DA federal chairperson James Selfe said the mayor and municipality of Midvaal have co-operated fully with both investigations.

“When these institutions make their final reports, the municipality and the DA will study them carefully, and will take such action as is appropriate.

“However, until these final reports are published, neither the municipality nor the DA will engage in guessing games based on idle speculation, nor will we reply to questions that are tendentious,” Selfe said.
