The complainant against Knysna Municipal Manager Grant Easton has identified herself as Susan Campbell.
Grant Easton is currently under investigation for alleged tender irregularities and racism. He recently defended himself by releasing a statement to the Knysna-Plett Herald.
Campbell intended keeping silent during the investigation but felt it necessary to respond to Easton’s factual inaccuracies.
She says that her complaint “relates to the prima facie fraudulent cancellation of a tender, prima facie fraudulent reasons being provided for not awarding tenders to bidders who’d scored the highest points and tendered the lowest price, the failure to investigate alleged tender fraud and nepotism, as well as racism relating to a tender.”
The points Campbell makes are HUGE. They involve R9.2-million in irregular tenders. the ISDF (the plan for Knysna’s future) and a municipal whistleblower.
I believe that i’ve identified the whistleblower but haven’t been unable to get comment or a copy of the complaint.
Grant Easton has not responded to my request for an interview.
But YOU can investigate the matter for yourself. Show interest in OUR town, read Easton’s statement and read Susan Campbell’s full response at ‘Complainant in Easton Investigation Responds’. You can also google these issues.
Do you best to understand what’s happening in our town. And help others understand too. We cannot sit quietly whilst the direction of our town’s future is being decided for us.
