Madibeng accused of corruption on radio show

Hundreds of community members and political party representatives joined a Talk Radio 702 special elections broadcast in the Brits town hall last Wednesday .

Shortly after the debate began, a scuffle broke out between ANC and EFF supporters.

Madibeng Mayor Jostina Mothibi said should the ruling party retain the municipality, it promises good governance and improved service delivery. She was booed repeatedly.

Residents blamed problems in the municipality as a result of illegal allocation of tenders, but Mothibe denied claims that her administration has been corrupt.

Several issues were raised during the broadcast, including the water shortages and corruption around government tenders.

During the broadcast Mothibe said an additional R20 million has been allocated to the Madibeng municipality to address the water shortages in the region.

The municipality has been under the spotlight over the last two years due to water problems, which have resulted in violent protests.

Mothibe says a R300 million project to upgrade the water provision and purification system at the municipality ran into some difficulties and had to be halted, but is back on track.
