Kgatleng District Council Secretary, Boikhutso Matenge, is reportedly still fighting for her freedom following her humiliating public arrest yesterday (Wednesday July 12th) at the ongoing US-Africa Business Summit in Tlokweng.
Our sources have revealed that Matenge was arrested for failure to comply with a court order which elapsed sometime early this week.
The order is apparently linked to payment of council suppliers which payment had been pending for some time.
However, spokesperson for Kgatleng District Council Segametsi Kebonang could neither confirm nor deny the arrest but referred our enquiries to the Ministry of Local Government saying the matter was beyond her position.
“You can forward your enquiries to the Ministry of Local Government since the Council Secretary is Accounting Officer at the Ministry,” she said.
