Ekurhuleni’s city manager targeted by scammers

The metro distances itself from fake emails doing the rounds regarding the “awarding” of a particular tender.

It has been brought to the attention of the metro that there is an email circulating purportedly from the city manager Dr Imogen Mashazi informing a company to urgently contact an official regarding “Contract: A-EE 16-2018”.

“The city manager distances herself from these malicious and fake emails, which certainly were never generated and sent by her nor do they originate from her computer,” said Zweli Dlamini, spokesperson for the city manager.

“We view this development as a desperate attempt, by faceless people, to tarnish the image of the city manager.”

This incident is viewed in a serious light and the metro has launched a full-scale investigation into the matter in an attempt to identify the source of the email.

The matter will be reported to the SAPS so that those responsible can face the full might of the law.

The metro is a municipality of systems and processes and fully subscribes to the procurement processes as outlined in the Municipal Finance Management Act.
