Inquiry: ‘no’ to submission

2010-07-15 00:00

HOWICK’S Concerned Ratepayers’/Residents’ Association was given the opportunity to submit a document to the commission of inquiry into the uMngeni Municipality yesterday.

Dismissed municipal manager Dumisani Vilakazi had argued that the submission falls outside the commission’s terms of reference.

Chairperson Advocate Vusi Khuzwayo said all parties involved need to read the document to decide whether or not it is in fact outside the terms of reference.

Prepared by an accountant, the document deals with financial shortcomings in the municipality. The commission reviewed the document, and both the chairperson and Vilakazi questioned association representatives.

The chairperson ruled that the document falls outside the scope of the commission.

Proceedings were adjourned to August 3 to afford Vilakazi, who was not present at last week’s proceedings, to review transcripts before cross-examining forensic investigator Andre Bouwer.
