Dear Advocate Madonsela
REQUEST FOR AN INVESTIGATION: DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORT – EASTERN CAPE PROVINCE – SCHOLAR TRANSPORT.
I take this opportunity to table the following matter with you, so that you may please investigate it appropriately for the benefit of the South African public.
I have anonymously received the attached information alleging maladministration within the Eastern Cape Department of Transport with regard to the scholar transport.
Most importantly is not how it landed on my desk but its contents which we kindly request your office to investigate. The amounts involved here exceeds R15m of public money as well as a list of people whose employment is allegedly not transparent and not according to procedure.
I look forward to your excellent investigative work on this matter, and these are the only things I could identify, however, the attached documents will help you to identify relevant offices to be approached for further information which may possibly bring up many more discrepancies that would need to be exposed.
