A controversial Durban businessman has filed an urgent court application to stop the eThekwini municipality from awarding a R90-million water tanker contract to his competitors.

Naicker is also challenging his company's exclusion from the bid. Officials told him it was excluded because he had colluded with Aqua Transport, another service provider.
