MUNICIPALITY DISAPPOINTED THAT WHISTLE BLOWER’S REPUTATION’S BEING TARNISHED

The Stellenbosch Municipality welcomes the recent court ruling made against Lizaan Morta, were the former Municipal Fire Chief was found guilty and sentenced of corruption. We however regret the fact that the whistle blower in the corruption case against the former Fire Chief is now being let down by irresponsible journalism and accused of being an accomplice to a crime. This is not a true reflection of the facts which can be obtained from the National Prosecuting Authority who dealt with this matter. The owner of Country Building Supplies approached a Stellenbosch Municipal official and requested her to inform her seniors about the situation and, furthermore stated that he was more than willing to assist with any investigation against Lizaan Morta. It is unacceptable that whistle blowers, who put their business at risk in order to prevent the abuse of municipal funds and to ensure that ratepayers money be used effectively, be portrayed as criminals.

The Stellenbosch Municipality promotes the principles of good governance. To disclose or report fraud contact Stellenbosch Municipality’s Anti-Fraud Hotline at 0800 111 027 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
