The African National Congress in the Western Cape has accused the Democratic Alliance in the province of hiding the truth regarding a construction scandal. 

This follows contracts of almost R610 million were awarded to a company headed by Sean Loggenberg, who has been barred from serving as a director in any company. 

ANC’s Cameron Dugmore said the ANC will make sure that all investigating agencies are aware of this scandal. 

“We believe that the DA needs to explain what criteria was used to appoint such a company with the dubious director involved, what is going to happen to the over 200 workers who are now unemployed because the sub contractors have not been paid.

People in Manenberg are living in containers because these houses have not been upgraded and they were supposed to do, and this is a huge scandal.” Dugmore added.

Meanwhile in response Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works Robin Carlisle said the statement by the ANC is not true because the contract has not been paid yet. 

MEC Carlisle said the tender adjudication processes in this province are fair and free from undue influence and corruption contrary to the ANC’s claims. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Siphesihle Dube said this not true, this is a blatant lie on their part. The contract that we were awarded with government is valued at R116 million and of which R32.5 million has been paid out for the work at through replacement schools.

“The contract itself was subjected at the tender adjudication processes, and we welcome any investigation that the ANC must Forge onwards to get to the truth but we have provided all the information necessary and we will continue to should they requested,” Dube added.
