On Thursday, 7 June 2018, the Directorate of Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI), in collaboration with Crime Intelligence, conducted a search-and-seizure operation at various offices of the Langeberg Municipality as well as the private residences of some municipal officials. This follows allegations of fraud, corruption and money laundering. The houses of a number of officials and councillors were raided.
Langeberg Municipality is currently in a stage 2 water restriction where one of the restrictive measures are prohibiting the use of municipal (potable) water to irrigate gardens. However, there seems to be a grey area when it comes to using water from boreholes.
Langeberg Municipality has set aside R3 million to establish boreholes in Montagu next month.
The Parks Department of Langeberg Municipality has started to make veld fire breaks in Montagu and McGregor. Enquiries can be directed to Ms C. Liebenberg at 023 626 8200.
