Jozi DA embraces ANC crony with R100m tender.

The City of Johannesburg, led by the DA, has quietly awarded a tender of nearly R100 million  to a company which eight years ago they accused of being part of the ANC’s “crony” capitalist machine of tender rigging, jobs-for-pals, and substantial backhanders. And they don’t want anything said about it.

eValuations Enhanced Property Appraisals has won the right to value nearly 900,000 properties in Johannesburg for the General Valuation Roll 2018 (GV2018). They were awarded the tender through what appears to be a dodgy process pushed through just days before the ANC lost power in the metro.

The bid was then processed and subsequently awarded by the DA-led council.

eValuations only won the contract when the first tender (under Bid A654, in which eValuations was the third-lowest bid, with the worst BBB-EE scorecard) was mysteriously withdrawn and then re-issued and re-advertised as Bid A683. When the bids came in on this round, lo and behold,  eValuations came in as the lowest bid.
