The controversial contract -which was meant to help the City with the rollout of an infrastructure project valued at R12bn-was declared irregular by the Auditor General in January.

"This will be so until all the outstanding work is completed in line with the City of Tshwane council resolution of February 28 2019"city manager Moeketsi Mosola told .


Mosola made no mention of wheather or not the company paid for the provision of water and sanitation ,eletricity and other utilities.


The City incurred R1.8bn in irregulular expenditure in the 2017/2018 finalcial year.
