Bay Metro Coun­cil su­ing

Grocott's Mail - - NEWS - By LOYISO DYONGMAN

AfriFo­rum has wel­comed the de­ci­sion by the Nel­son Man­dela Bay Metro Coun­cil (NMBMC) to sue sta­dium op­er­a­tors for al­most R200 mil­lion for al­leged mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

The em­ploy­ees are the sta­dium’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer Michiel Adrian Ober­holzer, two em­ploy­ees Chan­tal du Pisani, Na­dia Ger­wel and Ac­cess Fa­cil­i­ties and Leisure Man­age­ment (Pty) Ltd, the sta­dium’s op­er­a­tors.

In a state­ment re­leased on Wed­nes­day 23 November, AfriFo­rum said it had al­ready taken steps in Oc­to­ber 2015 and sub­mit­ted a court ap­pli­ca­tion to set aside the Metro Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion to reap­point Ac­cess as the sta­dium’s op­er­a­tors.

“The or­gan­i­sa­tion re­quested that an in­de­pen­dent foren­sic au­dit be per­formed on the op­er­a­tions of the operator and that steps be taken to col­lect any losses.

“AfriFo­rum met with Atholl Trol­lip, Mayor of Metro Coun­cil, in a bid to tackle fraud to­gether.”
