The Democratic Alliance (DA) has submitted a motion against the Ndlambe Local Municipality in Eastern Cape to reject the proposal to reverse osmosis equipment from Quality Filtration Systems (QFS) as repayment for the R20 million paid in advance of an “unlawful tender.”

“I submitted the motion on Monday and it notes that the tender was declared unlawful by Judge Zilwa and rendered as if it had never existed,” said Ndlambe Local Municipality DA Cllr Phil Kani.

Kani highlighted that the motion identifies QFS demanded and the municipality agreed to a further R10,3 million to pay for the equipment despite that no services or contract have been provided.

The DA wants the municipality to reject the proposal “to accept the equipment in lieu of repaying the monies unlawfully and irregularly paid to QFS.”

“It moves that no further money be paid to this service, and that all avenues be aggressively pursued to cover the money paid to date,” continued Kani.

The motion also demands the municipality to initiate a full investigation into the individuals who authorized the payment of R20 million to QFS ahead of any tender contract being signed.

The DA believes that any “attempt to throw more money to QFS is simply a smokescreen to cover the already illegal activity and set QFS up the preferred bidder in the new tender process.”

According to the party, it would be unnacceotable and unreasonable to expect any other contractor to take over QFS “problems and equipment.”
