A former acting manager in the office of the speaker has dared the council to investigate him for alleged maladministration.

The official was found by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to have endorsed payments without verifying if goods had been procured.

Mkhwebane has published a report where she instructs the Msunduzi Municipality council to launch an investigation into officials who are implicated in the procurement of goods for community meetings in ward 29 back in 2017.
