The Democratic Alliance (DA) has given the Emfuleni Municipality in the Vaal 14 days to respond to allegations of over R800 million that went missing in 2018.

The money is said to have been allocated for the provision of services such as waste management and the maintenance of the sewage and water works for the Emfuleni region.

The DA’s Gauteng Premier Candidate Solly Msimanga led a march to the Emfuleni Municipality Offices to demand better service delivery in the area earlier on Friday.

He says those who are responsible for misusing the money should be held accountable.

“We will march again to say you have failed to account; you have failed to bring some of the issues that we brought to receive the attention, and therefore, the people of Gauteng and even the people of South Africa must know that this government is not a government that takes the people’s cries.”
