Millions ‘safely in account’
money is safe

The R30 million which allegedly went missing from the coffers of the Matjhabeng Municipality in early January, is according to the chief financial officer, Thabo Panyani, safely and securely in the municipality’s investment account.

“As a norm when we receive large amounts from the grants, they are put into an investment account to ring-fence them for the purpose they are meant for,” says Panyani.

He and the acting municipal manager, Zingisa Tindleni, have provided Vista with Absa bank statements which show that an amount of R30 million was transferred from the municipality’s main bank account into its investment account on 17 January this year.

In January Vista reported that the MEC for the Free State Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta), Thembi Nxangisa, has invoked a section 106 on the municipality. This is done when the government suspects fraud or corruption in a municipality. Matjhabeng is currently under investigation.

The article also stated that some municipal officials had not received their January salaries, as an amount of R3,3 million had been hacked.

Tindleni says the investigation is in an advanced stage.
