Oudtshoorn. 15 January 2013. 10h30. While the local DA “leadership” shunned O!O’s warnings on the Sokopo VAT recovery contract and the national and provincial DA functionaries ignored the warnings, SARS took notice and acted.

It was confirmed earlier today that the SARS investigation launched in November was the direct result of SARS agents reading about the Sokopo contract on O!O.

“Daar sou beslis geen ondersoek gewees het as u nie oor die saak berig het nie”, an informed source told O!O on condition of anonimity.

And only this morning, O!O complained to Yusuf Abramjee of CrimeLine and LeadSA that reports of maladministration lead to nothing.

Abramjee suggested escalation, which O!O is doing. A local attorney is also putting pressure on the SIU to act on the Febtuary 2011 report. This morning a particular DA MP was also alerted to the lethargy of the SIU.

Surely some relief for Oudtshoorn is forthcoming!?

Civil leaders will have to act; the politicians – and the councillors – will not effect action!

Anton Bredell, the Western Cape minister of local government, told the Weekend Argus in April that he was unaware of the Sokopo contract… While O!O alerted his office and the premier’s office of the VAT recovery scheme days earlier!

Rely not on the politicians, be they clad in DA or ANC T-shirts.

  1. Well done O!O – this proves my point made earlier in another comment that action and prosecution often follows because individuals are prepared to take a stand and stick to their guns – unlike politicians and officials whose guns stick to their grubby over indulged fingers. Let’s hope somewhere this year the truth about the licensing office and its well dressed and fast talking chief will also come out. I read in the newspaper suggestions that the corruption there is everything but dead and buried. Mmmmmm perchance someone with knowledge will take a stand – who knows.

  2. Lekker slaap Sekopo
    Lekker slaap April
    Lekker slaap Lottering, Lot, Mnyimba, Avonduur
    Tatta Tayata
    Doodsbleekte stilte van die “lyksbesorger”, R.i.P Mogale
    ….terwyl Hannes, Theunsie en Bredell nog steeds vas slaap maar net elke 5 jaar wakker skrik as dit tyd word om n verdere 5 jaar ‘meal ticket’ te beding tensy natuurlik n misielkrisis hangende is.

    Als bly ‘rustig’ op ODN, BAIE RUSTIG – watch die politici en amptenary vanaf VANDAG !!! Meestal korrupte en onbevoegde soustreiners wat nou gaan begin krewel en krioel. Die Openbare Beskermer IS vandag ook reeds verwittig ! SLAAP RUSTIG want Selwin hierbo het dit 100% korrek, hier kom n ding !!!!!!!!!!!!
