East Cape municipal fraud scandal

Post a Fraud Alert:

The Hawks arrested eight officials and a business man from the Alfred Nzo District Municipality in the Eastern Cape on Thursday morning, 18 January 2018.

This follows investigations into allegations of fraud and money laundering amounting to R300-million and contravention of the Municipal Finance Management Act.

Eastern Cape Hawks spokesperson Anelisa Feni says some of them are managers at the municipality while others are former managers.

It is alleged that in October 2014, officials from the Bid Evaluation Committee and the Bid Adjudication Committee flouted the procurement processes of the municipality by irregularly awarding nine contracts to eight companies.
