Led astray

Dave Beelders, Vasco

While members of SAPS, law enforcement, security firms and ratepayers sweated it out cleaning up Goodwood station precinct a few weeks ago, with Prasa promising support in cleaning Vasco station in the future, little did they suspect that they were literally being led astray (“Station plan on track”, Northern News, October 19).

The report by Karen Pretorius on the R207 million housing contract – which reads very much like the report by the public protector – is just another classic example of how this deal has been manipulated (“Questions over Prasa housing contract,” Northern News, November 16).

The intrigue and posturing by those involved makes a mockery of “good governance”.

Basically, it stinks. And to think that not even erstwhile parliamentarians, City council and the rest were aware of this corruption. I trust Northern News will keep readers informed of developments.
