Exposed - municipal manager pocketed R5 million in excess of his salary

A municipal manager is being investigated after he allegedly pocketed a lump sum on top of his salary. 

The Independent newspaper exposed the municipal manager of the Garden Route District for pocketing over R5 million. He was never meant to receive the money. 

Monde Stratu, according to insiders received a R2.4m annual salary, when he was only entitled to R1.6m.

It is still not clear how he received the other millions but all this has been seen as a massive scandal. 

The investigation was as a result of the work of the anti-corruption group, Garden Route Corruption Busters (GRCB) which has been looking into the matter.

The investigators noted that the scandal happened right under the watchful eyes of the mayor, Chief Financial Officer as well as administrators. 

Municipalities are required to remunerate municipal managers within the ambit of the applicable legislative framework.

The results of the investigation are set to be made public upon conclusion.
