Mazzone, Ms NW to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs
Whether he is aware that a certain person (EMMC) refused to call a council meeting in order to deliberate over the alleged financial irregularities (details furnished BB40 and BB41), which contravened a council resolution and certain statutory provisions (details furnished BB39); if so, what action is he taking against the specified person for failing to adhere to the law?
I am not aware to 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 and 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 a response to this question.
