South Africa Western Cape Contract ‘Unlawful’, Sunday Times Says

May 13 (Bloomberg) -- South Africa’s Western Cape province should cancel a communications contract because the participation of adviser’s to the main opposition leader Helen Zille in the awarding process was “unlawful,” the Sunday Times said, citing a report by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

Advisers to Zille, who governs the Western Cape, were appointed to the committee which awarded the tender to develop a branding strategy for the province to advertising agency TBWA Hunt Lascaris, the Johannesburg-based newspaper reported.

Zak Mbhele, a spokesman for Zille, said in a phone interview to Bloomberg News he will issue an e-mailed response to the report later today.
