Tshwane mayor lays corruption charges against previous administration

City of Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga has laid charges of corruption against three senior officials of the previous City administration.

The mayor’s spokesperson, Matthew Gerstner said a criminal case was opened at the Brooklyn police station in Tshwane on Wednesday and charges related to fraud, corruption and misuse of public money.

“The charges relate to two projects, the upgrades at the City Hall and the Mayoral Residence.

“A lot of money went into these projects but the final result on both projects does not justify the expensive price-tag.

“Unfortunately we cannot name the involved individuals but police are investigating the matter and we hope arrests would be made soon,” said Gerstner.

Police spokesman Lieutenant Kay Makhubela confirmed that the matter was reported to the police and said it will be handed to the Hawks for investigation.
