The Polokwane High Court has dismissed yet another case brought by KPMM against RAL.
In 2016 KPMM tried to force RAL to furnish them with documents relating to the award of a tender for the construction of the road from Mamogashoa to Sekgophokgophong through Gedroogte to Ga-Molapo. Instead of complying with the relevant law governing such requests, they tried to short circuit the process. RAL resisted this unlawful conduct. KPMM then turned to the courts to try to force RAL to provide them with such documents without complying with the law. They also sought an order interdicting the chief executive officer of RAL, Maselaganye Matji, from involving himself in the matter.
High Court Dismisses KPMM’S Review Case Against Roads Agency Limpopo.
The High Court in Polokwane on Friday dismissed a review case brought by KPMM against the Roads Agency Limpopo (RAL).
In 2015, RAL awarded a tender to 4-Arrows Ruwacon Construction JV for the construction of P277/1 Road from Makuya to Masisi as well as P135/1 Road from N1 (Musina) to Phafuri in the Limpopo Province. KPMM had submitted a bid for this contract. However, its bid was disqualified due to non-compliance with the mandatory conditions of tender. It had failed to supply tax clearance certificates of its intended subcontractors. Dissatisfied with RAL’s decision, KPMM then turned to the court to set aside the award of the tender, arguing that the tender should have been awarded to it instead.
