I am not aware of these assertions.
I intend writing to the MEC responsible for Local Government in Gauteng, in terms of Section 106(4) (b) of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, 2000 (Act No.32 of 2000), requesting him to commission an investigation into the matter.
I will await the outcome of the investigation to determine whether or not there are findings that will enable me to provide specific responses in respect of sub-questions (1),(2) and (3).
