Enoch Mgijima local municipality councillors are calling for a forensic investigation into the irregular expenditure of almost R4- million reported in the municipal public accounts committee (MPAC) section 52D report presented by the municipality’s MPAC chairwoman Marina Bennett in an ordinary council meeting last Thursday.

Presenting the report, Bennett said R10 000 was approved by Donovan van Wyk on behalf of then-acting municipal manager Mziwoxolo Dingani and deposited into the account of a staff member of former executive mayor Lindiwe Gunuza-Nkwentsha in December, supposedly for fuel while Gunuza-Nkwentsha was attending a graduation ceremony in Johannesburg from December 13 to 15 last year.
