The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) have said it’s after another top-ranking official within the Western Cape who has been suspected of being involved in PPE corruption.
Back in July, the SIU went after officials from the Matzikama Local Municipality over getting allegedly involved in irregular contracts.
However, the unit has now declared municipal manager at the Cederberg Local Municipality to be in connection to the present matter.
The said municipal manager has been on the watch list of the SIU for a few a short time now.
“We found three contractors there that got contracts in an improper manner. And while we were investigating them it then led us to other municipalities,” said SIU Communications Head, Kaizer Kganyago.
As eventually week, SIU weren’t allowed into his building by enforcement .
“Our guys were here last week he then asked the Metro Police here to dam them from entering,” Kganyago said.
“He locked the offices because at that point we didn’t have the search and seizure order.”
