TSHWANE AFTER THE DA TAKEOVER
"We have launched programmes and mechanisms to save the City money. Chief among these are the strategic sourcing of goods, an open tender system, e-procurement systems, which are all, in one way or another, aimed at curbing leakages in the supply chain process and maladministration... Fraud cases have been instituted against corrupt officials. This is to avoid occurrences such as the notorious “shoe polish” debacle which saw millions of rand lost when goods were purchased at hugely inflated prices that otherwise could’ve been procured at wholesale rates."
Solly Msimanga, DA Executive Mayor, City of Tshwane, after 100 days in office on 12/12/2016
Remember the Tshwane Metro’s larger-than-life chief storekeeper Robert Slaughter (nose205)? He with a love of tattoos, exotic cars and luxury holidays? After having been suspended for three months, Slaughter is apparently back on the job, seemingly cleared of all the nasty accusations Noseweek had levelled against him.
