COSATU Free State is relieved to learn that the MEC of COGTA Free State in the Council Hearing of Matjhabeng Municipality which took place on 28 January 2020 has launched an investigation in the municipality.
We are informed that such has been done through invoking Section 106 of the Municipal Systems Act which is brought into the picture when the MEC suspects gross maladministration, fraud, and corruption.
We welcome the investigation so that we can have a full explanation of what has been going on in the Municipality which has placed the organization at a near-total collapse situation.
As COSATU Free State, we stand very firmly against any form of fraud and corruption and we will support all genuine initiatives which we firmly believe are intended to get rid of the scourge of improper actions undermining quality municipal service delivery.
