The party's regional leadership has called for the immediate suspension of Tshwane municipal manager Moeketsi Mosola pending the outcome of a forensic investigation into the awarding of a multibillion-rand project management contract.

According to a Sunday Times report, Mosola brought in engineering consultancy,Midrand-based GladAfrica to manage infrastructure projects worth R12 billion, despite being advised that doing so would be illegal.

ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Dr Kgosi Maepa says they have documents detailing the alleged corruption and have accused Mayor Solly Msimanga of being unaware of what is going on in his office.

Tomorrow at the press conference, we will bring evidence and documents in that regard and a lot other maladministration associated with this process because the DA has made a claim that wherever they given they are clean, but we want to show the country and the world that the DA has sold a pie in the sky.
