Dear Ratepayers, Business and Civil Society,
We mentioned at the beginning of 2015 that we would hold officials, politicians, contractors and attorneys involved in corruption activities in our Metro accountable, and we wish to now share with you that while the Hawks, National Treasury and Min Provin Gordhans team are investigating corruption in the NMB Metro, we took our first step today by serving the City Manager, The Mayor and Speaker with a “Letter of Demand”.
We are demanding the cancellation of a contract between NMB Metro and Erastyle (Pty)Ltd who has not successfully completed any work against this irregular contract as well as claiming the sum of R6 661 157.00 from the contractor and six metro officials including the City Manager and the CFO. This is the first claim out of 40 totalling an amount of R680 million which will be claimed back. All contractors and officials will be held accountable for the repayment of all wasted and mismanaged funds and all assets seized and criminal cases opened against judgments received.
See four pages of demand letter in attachment.
