hawksNews24 reports that the Hawks have put together task teams to investigate maladministration and corruption at municipalities around the country.  

Spokesperson Hangwani Malaudzi said the focus of the task teams would incorporate different provinces and that they had teams in KwaZulu-Natal, the Free State and Gauteng.  Malaudzi added municipalities in the public space would also receive attention.  Apparently the City of Tshwane is included in the probe, but Malaudzi refused to confirm or deny that.  While it is unclear what the scope of the Hawks' investigation entails, they are already investigating the controversial GladAfrica tender that has cost the City of Tshwane almost R500m since its inception in 2017.  According to a previous report, DA chairperson Abel Tau laid a complaint with the Hawks concerning the tender in 2018.  However, Tau told News24 he had not received feedback on the case.
