The Democratic Alliance has called for Public Protector Thuli Madonsela to investigate the awarding of a contract for building 66-000 toilets to a company linked to a family of President Jacob Zuma, Minister Lindiwe Zulu and ANC Secretary Gwede Mantsahe in the Eastern Cape.

DA Parliamentary Leader Mmusi Maimane said the toilet contract is yet another example of how those in power are using their political power to enrich themselves while the basic needs of citizens go unmet.

Maimane says we believe that in fact here is a case for maladministration and we believe the Public Protector must investigate.

“We can’t be able to hold the people of the Eastern Cape ransom while politicians are getting wealthy as tenders are being given to their family members” Maimane added.
