Council received a report on former Ezinqoleni Investigation indicating that almost all aspects of the investigation have been concluded.

The municipality is in receipt of the report from KZN Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs indicating that verification of projects has been finalised and the report has been forwarded to COGTA Forensic Team for processing. COGTA Head of Forensic Team has made an undertaking that the report will be ready by the first week of July 2018 of which thereafter it will be submitted to the MEC for COGTA for consideration.

It should be understood that the investigation was approved by the MEC hence she needs to be afforded an opportunity to consider it before it is presented to Council and made public. This process of having the report firstly considered by the MEC is part of quality assurance processes. It can therefore be assured that the final Comprehensive Investigation Report will be presented to Ray Nkonyeni Municipal Council in July Council Meeting for consideration and decision on the findings and recommendations.
