Parly committee unhappy with Madonsela over Gauteng e-tolls probe
A complaint was lodged with the Public Protector's office four years ago over allegations that Sanral was involved in irregular tenders.
This emerged during a Sanral briefing in national legislature on Tuesday on irregular, wasteful and fruitless expenditure.
A complaint was lodged with the Chapter Nine institution four years ago following allegations that the state entity was involved in irregular tenders relating to e-tolls.
Scopa chairperson Themba Godi says former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has ignored the complaint.
“You’ve no indication on whether there’s progress or not. I find that to be completely unacceptable after more than a year sending letters, numerous phone calls and still we do not know whether there’s progress or not.”
Transport Minister Dipuo Peters says there was a meeting scheduled with Madonsela which the Cabinet member could not attend.
“Thereafter it was just not possible for us to have a meeting with the Public Protector up to the stage, including the fact that I wrote to her before she left to saying we want to know what is happening and instead I received a letter that said I owe her a report.”
