South Africa Opposition to Uphold Western Cape Branding Contract

Helen Zille, South Africa’s main opposition leader, said the Western Cape province she governs won’t cancel a communications contract as recommended by the country’s Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

The participation of two of Zille’s advisers made the tender process which gave a contract to develop a branding strategy for the province to advertising agency TBWA Hunt Lascaris “unlawful,” the Johannesburg-based Sunday Times said today, citing a report by Madonsela.

“The argument for terminating the contract cannot be legally sustained,” because government regulations don’t bar special advisers from participating in bid evaluations, Zille said in an e-mailed statement today, citing her legal counsel. “The Western Cape government does not have the legal power to terminate the contract.”
