Deputy Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the Council -
1) notes that a 35-year-old man was arrested last week in a hotel apartment in Kwambonambi in Richards Bay for the theft of cheques belonging to the Zululand District Municipality, totalling over R4 million;
2) further notes that the man registered a company similar to the one contracted by the municipality and used his bogus company to claim the payments, which he used to go on a shopping spree, buy expensive furniture and clothing and host expensive parties in various luxury hotels across the country; and
3) takes this opportunity to congratulate the police for acting swiftly against this ruffian for his dim-witted, selfish acts to dip his hands into the public purse and feed his stomach and selfish gratification.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
