Mark Steele, MPP
DA KZN Spokesperson on Scopa
DESPITE resolutions by KwaZulu-Natal’s Scopa committee in 2010 and 2012 – on the R169 million Bombe Chitey construction contract – the province’s Economic Development and Tourism department has still not presented a forensic report on the matter.
In December last year the department told Scopa that there would be a Premier Commission of Inquiry. Yet at a meeting held earlier today, department officials could still not say whether a Commission had been appointed. The MEC did not attend the meeting.
The two year delay in acting on this matter is unacceptable as is the failure of the MEC to report fully to Scopa.
