He said at the conference, "the narrative is that R1.3-billion is stolen so we say from where we are sitting we can account for that money and these are the projects that were done."

Maile accused Joburg Major Herman Mashaba of using the Alexandra Renewal project as an excuse for the poor service delivery in the area.

The MEC further says that he and his team are open to any investigations and await all findings.
