Another Bomb Waiting To Explode As ANC Gives R41m Tender To Contractor Behind The R15m Stadium Saga

Thalami Civils, the Pretoria-based construction business responsible for the problematic R15-million Lesseyton sports field in the Eastern Cape's Enoch Mgijima local municipality, has secured an R41-million water scheme project tender from another insolvent ANC-run municipality in the province. The cash-strapped Amathole district municipality granted Thalami Civils the contract for the Cafutweni water supply system project in Dutywa's Mbashe local municipality in September, which required assistance to handle its R65-million monthly wage bill of 1 670 workers.

According to the claims of Amathole municipality spokeswoman Nonceba Madikizela-Vuso, if completed, the 12-month project will provide clean drinkable water to the Cafutweni village "at an RDP standard level." Since 2015, the firm has obtained agreements with at least seven renegade ANC councils in the province, with the most recent deal expected to raise the company's total revenues in the province to R86 million. The DA in the Eastern Cape has threatened to investigate Thalami's "suspicious" relationship with the municipalities. Thalami's string of successful business deals in the province was dubbed a heist by the party, and the water plan tender was surrounded in suspicion.

According to the party, Thalami completed at least six projects around the province. The DA has said that it would file a Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) application concerning all tenders obtained by Thalami Civils as part of its Tender Watch Eastern Cape program. DA MPL and Knoetze Jane Cowley visited various places and concluded that there was no value for money.

If this is a joke then it not a funny one, it does not make sense why the company that is behind the saga of the R15 million stadium. Corruption is done in the broad daylight in front of everyone but the government still claims that they are fighting against it everyday.
