More than 100 corrupt licensing officials at the City of Johannesburg face imminent arrest for definite cases involving nearly R 15 million in public funds, says Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba.
Mashaba has assured residents that this clamp-down on corrupt officials is only "the tip of the iceberg".
He confirmed that forensic investigators uncovered 972 alleged fraudulent transactions at licencing centres between January 2008 and February 2016.
These transactions amount to R14 717 444.
Mashaba claims that if the DA was not elected into power during last year's municipal elections, the corruption would not have been uncovered by the former administration.
According to Mashaba, city officials came forward as whistle blowers to help uncover allegations which were later investigated.
He says more corruption will be exposed though the course of this year.
