In another twist involving the public protector’s office‚ the Minister of Co-operative Governance an.
THE company that is co-owned by ANCYL president Julius Malema was recently awarded two tenders by the Polokwane municipality.
Only last month SGL Engineering Projects, the company Malema co-owns with Lesiba Gwangwa, was awarded a tender for rural sanitation worth R2,2million.
Polokwane municipality spokesperson Simon Mokwatedi confirmed yesterday that the company had already started to do work in Feke village in GaMaja.
He said after that it would proceed to Makgeng and Mountain View villages in GaMamabolo.
The contract for the rural sanitation project was awarded last month and is expected to be completed at the end of May.
"The contract entails putting up ventilated improved toilets for the villagers," Mokwatedi said.
Asked if the company had produced a tax clearance certificate prior to its appointment, Mokwatedi explained that it was a standard procedure for any company wanting to get a tender to submit documents that were accompanied by tax clearance certificates.
Another tender awarded to Malema's company was that of a road in Bendor.
It was awarded in January. Mokwatedi said the company was appointed for the road contract at a new residential area and the tender was worth R1million.
Mokwatedi said that the construction of the roads had not started yet as they were still at a planning stage.
