According to a Eye Witness News report, the City of Cape Town is due to hold a special full council meeting on Tuesday morning to discuss alleged tender irregularities related to the City's projects.
EWN Reporter, Lindsay Dentlinger says the meeting will be closed to the public to allow it to discuss whether to take disciplinary steps against two senior executives.
In recent weeks, the transport commissioner, Melissa Whitehead, has come under fire for alleged irregularities with not just one tender irregularity but a few. One of those involves the electric buses and another has to do with those unfinished projects on the foreshore as well as the developments of social housing.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
It is alleged that Whitehead may have tried to manipulate the process in favour of a certain preferred bidder, says Dentlinger.
Dentlinger says the panel that was considering the tender proposals was dissolved and a new one was put in place.
This has raised suspicions of those involved in the bidding process as to why that has happened— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
