Mhlongo, Mr TW to ask the Minister of Sport and Recreation
Whether she has been informed that the Vhembe Municipality in Limpopo has used R29 million to develop a sports facility and that the facility has to date not been developed allegedly due to irregularities at the VBS Bank; if not, (a) why not and (b) what steps will she take to rectify the situation; if so, what steps has she taken in this regard?NW4135E
The matter had come to the attention of the Minister via media reports. It has to be pointed out that there is no legal requirement for the municipality to inform the Minister in respect of expenditures incurred on municipal accounts. Nevertheless the Minister had tasked the relevant Departmental officials to liaise with the Municipality and the Provincial Department of Sports and Recreation in Limpopo province to establish the facts on this matter and to recommend the appropriate action(s) to take. The engagements with the municipality are ongoing.
MS. T. XASA, MP
