The Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu Natal has
lashed out at the ruling party for allegedly turning a blind eye
to government tenders that are obtained through fraud.
The IFP’s lashing comes shortly after business
couple Shaun and Sbu Mpisane's home was seized earlier this week
and a year after the Manase report was unveiled only to reveal
‘sugar coated’ information. The Mpisanes, who obtained most of
their tenders from eThekwini municipality, are alleged to have
been awarded more than R140 million in government tenders after
supplying false information to the Construction Industry
“The ruling party needs to stop protecting
criminals who benefit through tenders that are financed by
taxpayers’ money. The Mpisanes are not the only ones that are
fraudulently obtaining government tenders, however others who
have been lucky not to be caught out now might be in that Manase
report which the eThekwini municipality is so overprotective
of,” said Hon. Blessed Gwala, Leader of the Official
Opposition in the KZN Legislature and IFP National Spokesperson.
The IFP will not sit back and watch while the
rich get richer and the poor become poorer because of greed and
selfish dealings of the ruling party.
