The mayor from Ekurhuleni, Mzwandile Masina, refused to accept that he had done anything wrong in the scandal of a R1,9 billion chemical toilet bid.
He tried to explain that the three-card tender awarded in June 2016 could not be his fault as he only started as mayor in May 2016.
He says the media are asking questions to the wrong person about the matter, and if answers are sought, they should ask the people who were involved in the award of the tender.
He recommended that Mondli Ngugubele be questioned about the scandal that was a partner in the African Independent Congress (AIC), but also said that only R872 million was spent on the toilets.
He said there was nothing wrong with it, and there was no R1.9 billion scandal at the municipality.
