tshwane thumb100 The Star writes that, with the Tshwane ANC having already declared that it wants embattled city manager Moeketsi Mosola to step down amid the GladAfrica tender scandal, the spotlight will shift to the EFF.  

During the last council sitting, in November, a motion brought by mayor Solly Msimanga to suspend Mosola was deferred to the council’s meeting to be held on Thursday.  At the last sitting, both the EFF and ANC agreed that the matter should be deferred, without giving any reasons.  It will be seen this week if the EFF will follow in the footsteps of the ANC and support the motion to have Mosola suspended for a series of misdemeanours.  The draft Attorney-General’s (AG’s) report for the period July 2017 to June last year, to be presented to council on Thursday, has been leaked.  It has seemingly found that Tshwane’s controversial multibillion rand contract with GladAfrica was irregular.  It has furthermore found that Mosola awarded the tender without following due process.  Mosola has fought off efforts to suspend him.  He has denied any wrongdoing and successfully blocked the tabling of a Bowmans report into the tender award after obtaining a court interdict in the Labour Court.  Mosola has refused to be drawn into calls by the ANC for him to step down.
