- AmaBhungane is on the verge of publishing a series which reportedly links Julius Malema and the EFF to alleged tender corruption in Johannesburg and Tshwane
- Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has welcomed the report, waiting in 'great anticipation' for the latest findings
- Evidence in the report will supposedly link the Red Berets to a R1.2 billion Afrirent tender
AmaBhungane has reportedly found evidence linking Julius Malema to some dodgy dealings in Gauteng, announcing that a detailed report would soon be released.
"AmaBhungane will be publishing a series linking Julius Malema and the EFF to tender corruption in Joburg and Tshwane. Part 1, out soon, explores new evidence linking the EFF to Afrirent, the firm that won a R1.2bn CoJ fleet contract we reported on last year."
Johannesburg Mayor, Herman Mashaba responded to this with apparent gratitude, posting on social media that:
“We shall await, with great anticipation, any latest findings on the matter. The political leadership of the city of Joburg welcomes any investigation into any irregularities in our administration."
The new report picks up where one from last year, which offers evidence that the Joburg mayor bought the EFF’s loyalty in Johannesburg, left off.
Investigative journalist unit amaBhungane took to Twitter to announced that they would soon publish a series linking Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema and his party to alleged tender corruption in the City of Johannesburg and Tshwane.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Malema had banned AmaBhungane, along with the Daily Maverick's Scorpio team, after they published unflattering reports on him and his party.
Last year a report had claimed that Herman Mashaba had 'bought' the EFF's support in the hotly-contested metros with the AfriRent contract, with this new report expected to shed more light on the situation.
