Last month Nelson Mandela Bay Executive Mayor, Cllr Mongameli Bobani, alleged that a man entered City Hall and apparently pointed a gun at him whilst demanding a house.
In February 2019 Herald Live answered the question; “Why security is so slack at City Hall?” and postulated that “Problems escalate[d] after metro cut ties with Afrisec Strategic Solutions”
The municipality cut ties with Afrisec Strategic Solutions in 2016 and started legal action against the firm for R92m it believes it is owed.
The municipality is, however, pursuing an out-of-court settlement with Afrisec.
Bobani has been vocal in his belief that the metro should not have ended its contract with Afrisec.
Asked if his call for security to be beefed up was an attempt to get Afrisec back in business with the metro, Bobani said: “The matter of Afrisec is being handled by the administration. I don’t know what’s happening there.”
Now it would appear that Bobani could be an April [along with many other months] Fool as an investigation by the DA into the reported incident has found it to be devoid of any truth.
