Tzaneen municipal manager suspended for 'tough' stance against corruption

The Greater Tzaneen Municipality in Limpopo has suspended its municipal manager, Serapelo Matlala, for taking a hard-line stance against tender fraud, corruption and irregularities worth millions of rand. According to sources, internal documents and court papers, Matlala met his fate after terminating two multi-million contracts awarded to Burgersfort-based company, Tshiamiso Trading 135 Pty Ltd, after it allegedly inflated prices halfway through the projects.

Matlala also saved the struggling municipality about R1.3 million by cutting overtime budget from R3m to R1.7m. The first contract, for the upgrading of the Codesa Street, was supposed to be R9 217 610. 99, but invoices submitted were for the amount of R16 960 951. The second one, for the upgrading of the Mulati road, was supposed to be R26 824 512.00, but the company was now claiming R57 509 148.00.
