DA vindicated after DIRCO CFO is fired over R118m New york city home fiasco

By Mergan Chetty MP — DA Shadow Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation

The DA invites the termination of the CFO of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO), Caiphus Ramashua, over his supposed function in the R118 million unsuccessful and inefficient expense in the extremely questionable New York Pilot Project. We still think that there are more senior authorities and political leaders who are carefully linked to the political elite in the ANC, who likewise require to deal with the slice.

The termination of the CFO, who allegedly thought DIRCO was his own fiefdom which he was untouchable, was mainly due to the constant pressure by the DA in firmly insisting that the preliminary termination of the previous Director General, Kgabo Mahoai, was simply a smokescreen to safeguard other senior authorities and political leaders who were knotted in this corrupt offer.

The department had actually paid R118 million to the Simeke Group/JV Regiments Capital joint endeavor, who by the way did not tender for the task. Minister Naledi Pandor had actually been really hesitant to take the Portfolio Committee into her self-confidence concerning the problems surrounding the examinations around the corrupt authorities and political leaders. It was the oversight see to New York, by MPs that resulted in exposing the R118 million corruption scandal.

The DA still requires in the wake of the CFO’s termination that President Cyril Ramaphosa remembers and suspend both Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane– under whose watch this New York Pilot Project were started and for stopping working to exercise her executive oversight– and Ambassador Jerry Matjila, who was the Director General throughout that duration. We will compose to the President in this regard.
