Illegal buliding of roads lands City officials in hot water

The City of Cape Officials has been implicated with regards to an investigation into an illegal road construction in Table Mountain National Park.

“The people are not yet aware that they have been implicated and we cannot release their names as that would be grossly unprofessional,” says director of the city’s water and sanitation Sipho Mosai.

He said the city’s industrial relations department was examining the report. The city would not say how many officials have been identified.

The city is to meet about the matter on Monday morning. The report into the illegal ripping up of vegetation at Orangekloof, was completed over two weeks ago.

Mosai said departments had been issued with deadlines to study the report. He added that due to complications of the incident, the process could drag.

The investigation was launched after the waterworks department started construction for a 250m road through the restricted Orangekloof area earlier this year.

Yellowwood, rooiels and boekenhout were among the protected vegetation destroyed, however restoration efforts are in action.
