DA to complain about Limpopo govt

2012-10-26 15:04

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance will lay a complaint with Public Protector Thuli Madonsela against Limpopo government officials for allegedly awarding school feeding tenders to former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's associates, the party said on Friday.

"As long as the status quo prevails, corruption will remain a permanent feature in our province. In the meantime we want to see justice where corruption is exposed," said spokeswoman Desiree van der Walt.

The complaint would be laid against basic education MEC Dickson Masemola and the Limpopo education department for "unlawfully" awarding a R40m school feeding scheme tender to Malema’s associates.

The Mail and Guardian on Friday claimed that Malema's bodyguard, his former driver, cousins and close associates benefited from the R1.7bn school feeding programme.

The contract was allegedly manipulated to favour people who were close to Malema. According to the report, Malema handed a list of his favoured bidders to Masemola.

Malema denied sending the list to Masemola and said he did not know anyone who dealt with school nutrition in the department.

    If the D.A. plans to find justice in all corrupt dealings it will keep them busy for a very long time and they will also have to go back a few years as that was about the only goal of the A.N.C.

  • kala.bafazi - 2012-10-26 15:25

    I think Juju redirected the feeding scheme to his mouth. BTW was it a R40 million or a R1.7 Billion school feeding scheme?

      Thanks Andrez.

    I hope no one got a school feeding tender in the Northern Cape where some schools were closed for 4 months? This would be money for nothing!

    DA have all their hopes pinned on Madonsela, everything is Madonsela this and Madonsela that, hey the poor lady in in for it hey, please give her a break, remember she is just a public protector, her main job is not investgations only! Cannt you report some cases to the police?

      phumi.tshabalala.35 - 2012-10-26 15:58

      Police aint got nothing on Mandonsela. She talks about solid proof/findings, not 'it is alleged this & that, so sit down and mind the gravy that's dripping from the side of your lip!

      jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2012-10-27 10:29

      Michael and what will the police do with it?.

  • mart.botha - 2012-10-26 15:43

    ALL THOSE WHO BID AND FAILED MUST ALSO SUE THE GOVERNMENT FOR BEING DISADVANTAGED BY THEIR (GOVERNMENT'S) CRIME AND CORRUPTION. CLAIM BILLIONS AND BILLIONS AND IF NECESSARY. SOMEWHERE DOWN THIS LINE, GOVERNMENT MUST REALISE THAT PUSSYFOOTING AROUND CRIME AND CORRUPTION IS AGAINST THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. THEY MUST GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER SHARP SHARP. EXTRA-ORDINARY COURTS MUST BE SET UP TO HANDLE THESE EXTRA-ORDINARY CRIMES, AND JUSTICE MUST BE SWIFT, DECISIVE AND HARSH.
