Adoption of DA Motion will improve transparency in Govan Mbeki Municipality

The Democratic Alliance (DA) welcomes the unopposed adoption of a DA Motion with the intent to improve transparency and accountability in the Govan Mbeki Municipality. The Motion allows for the public to be able to scrutinise the municipality’s bid adjudication committee.

Some functions of a municipal bid adjudication committee include the consideration of reports from the bid evaluation committee and the final awarding of municipal tenders.

The Motion was unopposed in the council. As per the Standing Orders of the Govan Mbeki Council, it will now be considered by the Mayoral Committee, specifically considering any possible legal implications of the implementation of the Motion in terms of municipal finance regulations and the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act. Following this, a report is expected by the council.

It is no secret that South African Municipalities are plagued by corruption which is often rampant behind closed doors where tenderpreneurship thrives.

Being transparent with the business of the bid committee grants public assurance that municipal tenders are awarded in an ethical manner, free from corruption and maladministration.

“For too long, the Govan Mbeki Municipality has been doing its business in darkness,” says Cllr Ciska Jordaan, “The DA hopes that the mayoral committee will consider this Motion with the gravity that it deserves, as we will continue to shine the spotlight on the financial affairs of this municipality.”
