George mayor’s War on Waste raked in illicit profits for pals

DA initiates probe which reveals host of transgressions in Western Cape municipality – which NPA has ignored.

In true South African style, residents on both sides of the railway track (there really is one running through town) are incensed at the allegations, along with the thinly disguised racial friction, discrimination, BEE and its counterpart WMC.
