GladAfrica: Tshwane City manager complains against Msimandze

Tshwane City manager Moeketsi Mosola filed a complaint against Mayor Solly Msimandze because the labor court challenge for the controversial GladAfric scandal has been postponed.

A court challenge before the Johannesburg Labor Court was brought by Mosola against Msimanga, the chairman of Kathe Mathebe and the city of Tshwane.

Last month, Mosola received a temporary interdiction to stop the preliminary report by the councilman GladAfrica by Bowmans (formerly known as Bowman-Gilfillan).

However, the relief was temporary.

On the day the judgment was issued, Judge Andre van Niekerk said that the complaint would be raised on November 9.

However, when Tshwane COO James Murphy joined the application as a party, the case had to be postponed.

In the meantime, Masola also made a formal complaint to Mathebe, against Msimandze and the administration of DA Tshwane for "a leak of a preliminary council report on the GladAfric offer".

"The initial council report was maliciously leaked to the Sunday Times and City Press by the executive and prosecutor general because they were the only ones who received them from their lawyers – Bowman-Gilfillan," he said.

In the complaint Masola asked Mathebe to investigate the matter.

"The leak of the interdictional report of the presidential council and the ruling party in Tshwane is a total disregard [for] the law, lack of respect for court decisions and, most importantly, constitute a serious violation of the Code of Conduct for councilors "- he said.

Masola said he believed it was reasonable, fair and in the spirit of the rule of law that Mathebe would speed up the investigation.

He said he would fight and oppose any acts of "illegality and / or illegality."

Masola added that with the complaint he believed that the council would see that there are motives to get rid of it by "hook or cheat".
