The ANC has alleged that the City of Cape Town gave a lucrative housing contract to the wife of a suspected gangster.
The contract was awarded to Glomix Housebrokers CC, which is run by Nicole Stanfield.
According to the ANC, Stanfield's husband, Ralph, is a suspected 28s gang leader.
However, the Western Cape Provincial Government (which is currently led by the DA) has said that Glomix Housebrokers passed all the necessary tests and met the requirements for the contract.
They have also said that they were not aware that Nicole Stanfield was in charge of Glomix, or her connection to Ralph.
Additionally, the ANC in the Western Cape has accused the DA in the province of having a close relationship to the criminal underworld, according to IOL.
The ANC's Western Cape Secretary Faiez Jacobs, says Nicole Stanfield received a R400 million tender to construct over 700 houses in the Valhalla Park area after gangsters intimidated the previous contractor.
Reportedly, the 28s gang brought the Valhalla construction projects to a halt when they demanded R300 000 a month from the city government and the contractor in protection money.
