Investigate the mess

Colin Arendse, Wynberg

The recent furore around security upgrades to the Mayor’s Pinelands residence appears to have opened a hornet’s nest (“What’s good for the goose”, Bulletin, October 12).

On October 2, Xolani Sotashe, leader of the official opposition ANC in the City attempted to raise oversight queries on these upgrades with the City’s Portfolio Committee on Security and Social Services.

DA councillor, Mzwakhe Nqavashe, who chaired the meeting, prevented him from making any representations on the unauthorised expenditure. Could it be that the DA administration was trying to hide the contents of a City deviation report dated 5 May 2017?
