No deal with local suppliers questioned at MPAC meeting

Umdoni Municipality, Scottburgh

At the recent Umdoni Municipal Public Accounts Committee (MPAC) meeting an observation was made that only two of the six ANC members of the committee were present.

However, Councillor Hlengwa had submitted an apology.

Queries around certain “ payments made on dates prior to the dates of order” were raised and officials were requested to investigate and report to the next meeting.

The procurement of tyres from suppliers outside of Umdoni was raised by Councillor Khan of Al-Jama-Ah and Councillor Ally of the IFP. “If inability to supplying tax certificates was a reason for excluding local suppliers, then the matter should be addressed as a matter of urgency with the Umdoni Business Chamber,” said Committee Chairperson Councillor Reshma Brijraj.

An amazing, too good to be true discovery, was that while the SCM section was has always been hammered for incompetence, in the project “repairs to potholes in Amandawe and Freeland Park” the job was completed within sixty days from the date of service provider appointment to making payment.

“Why can’t that level of competence also prevail in Scottburgh and Umzinto, questioned,” Councillor Brijraj.
