Centurion metro contractor nabbed for ‘corruption’

Tshwane metro police arrested a municipal sub-contractor for alleged corruption in Centurion.

It is believed the sub-contractor at the metro’s electricity department sold a prepaid meter to a resident.

Ward councillor Casper McDonald said the man was caught at the weekend while trying to sell the prepaid meter.

McDonald said the resident paid some of the money to the contractor and promised to pay the rest the following day.

“The resident contacted a senior Tshwane metro official and metro police’s internal investigator.”

“The next day – as money changed hands – the sub-contractor was apprehended and a case of corruption was opened,” said McDonald.

He said the resident did the right thing by contacting the metro.

“We need more residents to stand up and help the council in the fight against corruption.”

The councillor said the DA administration had declared war on corruption when the party took office.

“The fight against corruption is not won yet, we are far from it.”

He said corruption deprived the council of money needed for service delivery.

“We desperately need to stop corruption and use that money to upgrade our infrastructure to give residents the services they need and deserve.”

An enquiry was sent to the spokesperson of TMPD, Isaac Mahamba on Sunday, but he failed to respond.

The sub-contractor was due to appear in the Pretoria magistrate’s court on Monday.
