ActionSA Tshwane Caucus is pleased to note the interest that has been shown by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) in the Rooiwal Waste Water Treatment Plant. The Head of the SIU, Advocate Andy Mothibi, was heard on radio, confirming the interest of the SIU in investigating the matter pertaining to the payment of R94.1 million by the City of Tshwane, in advance, to the contractor for the Rooiwal Waste Water Treatment Plant, where impropriety is alleged.
We visited the Rooiwal Waste Water Treatment Plant on Friday 24 June 2022 to see first-hand what progress, if any, had been made and if the contractors were not on site. We are able to confirm that very little progress has been made since January 2022. In addition, the contractors are no longer on site.
ActionSA remains committed to resolving the water provision woes for the residents of Hammanskraal. We will continue to pursue the matter internally, until the concerns have been fully addressed. The long-awaited report by the Executive Mayor on the matter, will provide much needed information.
