Mopani Municipality takes legal action to recover money stolen from Giyani water project

# The Mopani District Municipality in Limpopo has instituted legal action to recover the money that was allegedly stolen during the refurbishment of the Giyani Water Treatment plant. A report by the Special Investigating Unit found that government officials irregularly awarded tenders without due process. The SIU revealed how the initial amount of 90-million-rand for the project ballooned to 2.2-billion-rand and then later to 4.4-billion-rand. Mopani mayor Pule Shayi says they have a justifiable case to begin to recover and recoup the money.
