Fraudulent land deals

22 April 2016, 07:55  - Joyce.Jagaroo

RATEPAYERS will not be fooled.

The bidding war for the old polo­crosse fields in Msunduzi is yet another corrupt and fraudulent act to attach to the list of crooked deals ripping off ratepayers (The Witness, April 14). This is the worst kept secret, as many civic minded people and politicians addicted to good governance noticed the writing on the wall months ago.

When the smart meter contract surfaced, social responsibility was used as a façade to shift the focus to secure the old polocrosse fields. Exposures and candid statements by the DA labelled the party as looking a gift horse in the mouth! Now, when the suspension of officials is the order of the day in our collapsing municipality, the DA predictions are leaving many red faced and ashamed.

The alleged R8,5 million overpayment to KSA Security is just one deal the DA wants investigated, especially now that the security company member is a bidder for the prime land.

The DA also eagerly awaits to see who will be the beneficiary of the other much publicised land opposite Scottsville Primary School and rest assured we will see another can of worms open when this prime land bidding turns sour.

Residents, you have the power to save our city from corruption that is sacrificing service delivery.

Politics is a knife that cuts into the Public every which way it can. Politics is the sociopath, the Public its willing victim. The Public needs to demand better instead of praising sensationalism, gossip and bias over logic and truth. Read more...
