Mayor turns to Treasury in council probe bid

    Raymond Mhlaba executive mayor Bandile Ketelo has written to Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba asking for funds to conduct a forensic investigation into some municipal infrastructure grant (MIG) funded projects.

    Ketelo said the Specialised Audit Services unit from National Treasury conducted a preliminary investigation into the projects, which were in Nkonkobe municipality before it was merged with Nxuba municipality to form Raymond Mhlaba.

    “Upon the completion of the preliminary investigation, the report was tabled before the newly established Raymond Mhlaba local municipality [council] by the team from National Treasury on June 1,” Ketelo said.
