Maile to appear before human rights commission over embattled Alex project

- | 5 months ago

Gauteng Human Settlements and Urban Planning MEC Lebogang Maile is expected to appear before the South African Human Rights Commission on Tuesday over the embattled Alexandra Renewal Project (ARP).

Maile recently denied claims that funds meant for the project were misappropriated. He said allegations that funds were misused more than a decade ago were made "without a shred of evidence", adding no single person could be held accountable for the entire R1. Last month, Maile laid charges against EFF Gauteng leader Mandisa Mashego at the Alexandra police station over her remarks that he was a thug and a liar, and that he had benefitted from the ARP.

Mashego allegedly made the accusations against Maile during the demolition of illegal structures in Alexandra in May.
