Greater Kokstad Municipality spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane confirmed that the municipality had asked the KZN Treasury to do a forensic investigation on 30 August, 201. The report came back last year and was tabled to councillors on 15 December, 2015. This indicates that there is no leak because it was tabled to council and became a public document.

He said the deputy mayor is not linked to the report, however, during investigations, other people diverted attention by implicating him in other issues but there was no proof of this.

Ncwane said the report does not implicate the CFO, but as expected, the report indicates that some of the irregularities found should have been picked by her as the overall manager of financial services department.

“It is worth mentioning though that the municipality, including the former CFO, requested the forensic investigation,” said Ncwane.

He denied that two managers, Gqola and Makhoba, abandoned their positions saying they resigned and the former executive manager financial services found greener pastures at the municipality in Port Shepstone.

“We emphasise again that Mayor Nosisa Jojozi and Deputy Mayor Bheki Mtolo were not implicated in the report so these allegations cannot force anyone to distrust them,” said Ncwane

When the Fever asked him what steps or action will be taken by the municipality and management regarding the report, he said the council mandated the former municipal manager Zamo Mkhize to implement the recommendations as they are appear in the report, and that law enforcement agencies have been contacted and they would like to end there as the matter is now sub judice.
Mkhize has since left the municipality after his contract came to an end and was not renewed.
