ANC Tshwane regional chairperson Dr Kgosi Maepa joined Karima on the Karima Brown Show on Monday. He says every report above R200 000 is reviewed by the mayoral committee.

Every report above R200 000 is presented there and this one was billions of rand. He should have known and should have chaired that committee.

We have emails exchanged between various stakeholders who participate in the mayoral committee.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa on the Breakfast Show on Monday, Msimanga said he was expecting a preliminary report on the matter.

I did say, we are not going to hide any wrongdoing and if we find any wrongdoing, we will definitely be acting on it. The preliminary report will inform what the next step is.

Solly Msimanga, Tshwane mayor

Maepa has gone on to reveal details on other alleged corrupt activity, claiming Msimanga has made several irregular appointments to the city's administration, to serve his own interests and members of the Democratic Alliance (DA)

A gentlemen Stephen de Villiers was appointed as head in the office of the mayor to run the diary with a salary of over a million rand. The gentleman was just a body builder, he was never in the municipal set up and never had any degree to qualify.

Kgosi Maepa, ANC Tshwane regional chairperson

The mayor went out of his way, appointed the gentleman because he represented his other interests outside the city. The mayor is involved in many other things of white businesses of the white caucuses of the DA so they actually tell him who to appoint.
