The IFP wants to know from the Minister of
Public Works, Mr Thulas Nxesi how he will recover the millions
of Rands lost due to corruption in his Department.
IFP Spokesperson on Public Works, Mr Petros
Sithole MP said, "The Minister must give us clarity on how his
department will recover the money lost during the renovation of
eleven ministerial houses and how the companies involved, and
the officials who colluded with them, will be brought to book."
"Public funds have been wasted through illegal
price inflation, which far exceeded the budgeted amounts. Those
involved must not only be named and shamed, but also be banned
from dealing with the department or any other government entity
in the future," said Sithole.
The IFP calls on the Minister of Public Works
to not only provide this plan, but also clarify what steps will
be taken to reduce the level of corruption in the department.
