City of Tshwane executive mayor Solly Msimanga has appointed two special investigators to deal exclusively with priority corruption in the capital city.
The investigators‚ who will be based within the executive mayor’s office‚ will deal with high-level corruption cases‚ including upgrades to the City Hall and mayoral mansion.
“The move to add the two skilled special investigators ought to be celebrated as it allows for more transparency and will bolster our efforts to ultimately stop corruption‚” said Msimanga.
Everything possible was being done‚ he added‚ to ensure that “communities are not robbed of quality services and standard of living by thieves masquerading as public servants.”
The investigators will work hand in hand with the existing Forensic Services Division‚ which deals with corruption and fraud cases involving city officials. “This addition to the Office of the Executive Mayor will also go a long way to give effect to our commitment to stabilising the city and its finances‚” said Msimanga.
