This after an anonymous official from the city revealed that the corruption-accused Sodi and Blackhead Consulting was allegedly awarded a tender of more than R200 million.  

The revelation was made at the ActionSA hearings into the Hammanskraal water crisis this past weekend. 

 Mashaba claims the city awarded Sodi a tender to consult on the Hammanskraal water crisis.


"Our legal team, as we are speaking [are preparing the court papers] in the next half an honour I would be signing the PAIA progress to force them to provide us with the information," said Mashaba. 


Sodi is accused of handing out cash he made through government tenders to the African National Congress (ANC), as well as high-profile politicians including Health Minister Zweli Mkhize and ANC treasurer Paul Mashatile.


Sodi is currently out on bail for the R295m Free State asbestos project company.
