durbanSunday Tribune reports that the head of eThekwini municipality’s revenue protection services was recently placed on suspension following an investigation linked to alleged kickbacks on a tender.  

Nathi Nkwanyana is alleged to have made arrangements with individuals within the municipality to secure lucrative tenders, then allegedly “cut a deal” for his own gain.  Nkwanyana is the head of the unit that operates the troubled Revenue Management Services (RMS) system.  The controversial unit has been in the spotlight for several months after Durban residents vented their frustrations over receiving exorbitant utility bills, as a result of the chaotic system.  Three weeks ago, Mayor Zandile Gumede admitted that residents were being billed incorrectly and called for an inquiry into the system.
