Bhanga, Mr BM to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs
Whether, with reference to his reply to question 2143 on 27 July 2015, a forensic investigation was not commissioned, despite the Makhado Municipal Council having resolved to conduct the specified investigation on the matter as indicated in his reply to question 338 on 12 March 2015, if not, how does he reconcile his reply to question 2143 on 27 July 2015 with the fact that the investigation was not commissioned; if so, (a) who took the decision not to commission the forensic investigation, (b) what date was the decision taken not to commission the investigation and (c) on what grounds was the decision taken not to commission the investigation?
The Department is currently conducting further consultations with the province to establish why a forensic investigation was not commissioned as per the Council resolution. A reply on the matter will be provided once the information is available from the province.
