Horn, Mr W to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs
With reference to the Kabuso Investigative Report into the Makana Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape, (a) what action has he taken against those implicated in the report, (b) what plans does he have, if any, to recover any financial losses incurred by the guilty parties and (c) when will he table the Kabuso report, released in February 2010, in Parliament?
The response below was provided by municipality:
(a) Following the recommendations of the Kabuso forensic report, the employment contracts of the Municipal Manager and Strategic Manager in the Office of the Mayor were terminated. Further, a committee was established consisting of councillors to address issues implicating councillors and an action plan was also submitted to Council in order to address issues implicating officials. This process is being coordinated by the Administrator.
(b) The municipality's legal representatives are engaging with those implicated with a view to recover the financial losses incurred by the municipality.
(c) I was not aware that the Kabuso report is supposed to be tabled in Parliament. The Administrator is dealing with this matter and would adhere to such a request.
