DA initiates probe which reveals host of transgressions in Western Cape municipality – which NPA has ignored.
It reads like the plot of a crime novel; here we have a picturesque South African town nestling against the backdrop of a majestic mountain range, bordered by ancient yellowwood forests and endless white sandy beaches on the Indian Ocean. Yet this pleasant town conceals a dark underbelly of corruption, where the main accused is none other than the mayor – who denies any wrongdoing.
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.
Then the A-Team arrives in town and, without further ado, seizes the mayor’s phone and car tracking records.
