Madisha, Mr WM to ask the Minister of Transport
Whether he has launched any form of enquiry into the allegations that contracts were illegally awarded to certain politically connected persons (names and details furnished) for road maintenance, grass cutting and other services in the Government’s development programme to uplift emerging business people in the Free State; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
The National Department of Transport has not received allegations regarding involvement of politically connected persons who were awarded contracts for road maintenance programme in the Free State Department of Police, Roads and Transport.
It is for that reason that no form of enquiry has been launched to this effect.
We would encourage the Honourable Member to give us information and relevant details, so that allegations can be investigated with immediate effect.
