‘Jordaan’s first 100 days in office spent dodging scandals’
The Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor yesterday delivered a report on his first 100 days in office.
CAPE TOWN – Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Danny Jordaan came under fire from the Democratic Alliance who claims he spent his first 100 days in office ‘dodging scandals’ instead of honouring his promises.
Jordaan had promised to tackle corruption, maladministration and a rise in gang violence when he became mayor.
Yesterday, Jordaan delivered a report on his first 100 days in office.
He says the public shouldn’t speculate on the outcome of an investigation into more than a dozen suspended senior municipal officials.
Jordaan says the Hawks are probing investigations of corruption in the metro.
At Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium he told the crowd which included residents, church leaders and politicians that 17 suspended officials are being investigated for various alleged transgressions.
Jordaan stressed they should seen as innocent until proven guilty.
The suspensions relate to a range of allegations including alleged financial mismanagement.
