Tshwane Mayor, Stevens Mokgalapa, says he has nothing to do with the awarding of tenders.
A Sunday newspaper reported that he flouted the rules by not reporting a Huawei-sponsored trip to China as the city issued an R1-billion smart city’ tender.
He says the report isn’t true and is full of inaccuracies.
“ I am totally not involved in this and there is no such tender as one billion. The tender that is out was issued on the 29th of July which is about development and maintenance of a public safety solution to the city which is closing on the 28th of August and the date I am informed has been extended to the 13th September,” said Mokgalapa.
After being appointed mayor, Mokgalapa announced that the city terminated the scandal-ridden GladAfrica contract.
The Auditor-General found the controversial contract wasn’t above board and cost the city R1.7-billion in irregular expenditure.
