Susan Campbell, on behalf of the Knysna Ratepayers’ Association, laid complaint against the awarding of the tender. A 100% black owned company that scored the most preference points, submitted a lower bid, and would do more work, lost to a 100% white owned company offering less. It was possible through the Municipality offering an illegal bonus scheme to local businesses. It was called the ‘Preferential Premium Policy’. Taxpayers lost a small fortune.
