So far, no steps have been taken after the alleged sale of a municipal road roller that was apparently sold by an official three months ago.No arrests have been made by the police, nor any disciplinary measures been implemented by the Phokwane Local Municipality regarding the selling of the road roller in May.The ignorance of the matter has caused concern from the community, and for the municipal officer in question, it is business as usual. The road roller was reportedly confiscated by the Harts-water police in May, and is still at the police station.The community is accusing the municipality and the police of trying to sweep the matter under the carpet in an effort of protecting the official in question.The Phokwane Local Municipality is also accused of buying political favours, and in the process, failing to find the grounds to suspend the official.According to LtCol Dimakatso Mooi, the Hartswater police are investigating a case of possible corruption and the misuse of municipal property. “No arrests have been made,” Mooi said.“No one is sweeping anything under the carpet, nor buying any political favours regarding this matter. The municipality has given the required information to the police,” said Kgalalelo Letshabo, communications officer.“With regards to an internal investigation, it has not been concluded yet. Once the investigation is concluded, it will be communicated in the best interest of the community,” Letshabo said.Meanwhile, the Pampierstad road is still not repaired although the municipality sang praises when the road patching project was launched last month. Road users then applauded the municipality as they then saw light at the end of the tunnel as it is a nightmare to drive on the road.The municipality failed to comment on the allegations that the road patching project was stopped due to the absence of the road roller.A source brought it to the attention of Express Northern Cape that another piece of equipment was used, but it broke down due to the workload.
