Dear CM, CFO, Head IPTS, Head SCM and Politicians, Ratepayer
2015 – Accountability: NMB IPTS.
Reference is made to the latest payments of R4.97 million made to Kyoscan in December 2014 relating to the continued compensation for the affected taxi operators, which we all know were not affected, whilst the 60 taxi’s remain in storage and despite the fact that the previous payment made was in full and final settlement. NMBM effected payments amounting to R18 million for compensation to Kyoscan for the 12 month pilot phase however the total income received from the operation of the buses was only R 1,8 million. In addition, payments to the value of R2.4 million were made to Stratcom for a Gospel and Wrestling event at the 2014 Splash Festival, events which never took place. There are many other examples which can be added.
The R 1.9 billion IPTS grant funding received from National for the NMBM IPTS implementation has become a milkcow for corrupt officials, businessmen, attorneys and politicians. As a result the NMBRA and AfriForum PE have served a report on the corruption relating to the NMBM IPTS to 6 organs in Government. National Treasury has further contracted Deloitte’s to do a full forensic audit on all IPTS payments made from inception to date. The forensic audit which commenced late November by Deloitte’s has not managed to put a halt to the corrupt activities of politicians and officials who continue the abuse of taxpayers monies.
