Tau rejects claims his administration was riddled with corruption
The former JHB mayor has denied claims by his successor Herman Mashaba that his administration was riddled with corruption.
During his 100 days in office speech on Thursday, Mashaba claimed he inherited cases of corruption, nepotism and fraud from Tau.
Tau, who was recently elected chairperson of the South African Local Government Association, says he would never allow corruption in his administration.
“We acted to mitigate any corruption and that’s why we set up a hotline that’s managed by an independent firm to take on corruption without any interference.”
