Former Sedibeng District Municipality Mayor, now Mayor of Emfuleni, Simon Mofokeng, submitted alleged bogus financial statements on services rendered by the Shakespeare Inn in Vanderbijlpark to the provincial Legislature in a question posed by the DA.
While Mofokeng was mayor of Sedibeng, alleged suspicious transactions amounting to just over R2million took place at Shakespeare Inn.
No information was provided on what exactly the transactions, ranging from R15 000 – R30 000 per month, were spent on.
It is alarming that these transactions were not picked up during the municipal audit into Sedibeng.
The DA will submit these transactions to the Auditor-General in order to assist with the investigation into Simon Mofokeng’s alleged money laundering scheme.
Sedibeng and Emfuleni are no longer financially viable municipalities due to the looting of the municipal coffers by public officials.
Furthermore, the DA has also requested Cooperative Governance MEC, Paul Mashatile, to launch a departmental investigation into the matter.
Residents of Sedibeng and Emfuleni have had enough of corruption and the alleged looting of public money. It is high time that all dodgy officials and elected representatives are held to account.
