EVATON - The Democratic Alliance says the Gauteng Human Settlements and COGTA MEC, Lebogang Maile, has failed to account for R376 million that has been spent so far on the Evaton Renewal Project (ERP) in the Emfuleni Local Municipality. In a reply to questions in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature from DA Emfuleni Constituency Head, MPL Kingsol Chabalala, MEC Maile revealed that R332 117 511.77 has been spent on this project so far. However, Chabalala said these figures are contradictory to the figures contained in the report published by the Auditor General in 2016 and his predecessor’s written replies in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature. He said the DA has written to MEC Maile requesting him to investigate the failed ERP, but they have not yet received any feedback. Chabalala said Evaton residents have the right to know what happened to their money.
