The Bowman Gilfillan report, yet to be made public, found that De Lille allegedly failed to report tender corruption to council.

A new forensic report recommends the Cape Town council brings disciplinary charges against outgoing Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille.

The report, yet to be made public, has found that De Lille allegedly failed to report tender corruption to the council.

De Lille only has one week left in office before Community Safety MEC Dan Plato takes over as mayor.

On Thursday, a full council will have to decide on how to proceed during a closed-door meeting, reports EWN's Lindsay Dentlinger.

Law firm Bowman Gilfillan has been investigating alleged corruption in the city's Transport Authority since late last year.

EWN understands that the report also recommends charges against MayCo member for Transport, Brett Herron, in whose portfolio the irregularities are reported.

The 2000-page Bowman Gilfillan report has been provided to councillors.

De Lille says she is reading the report and will make a full statement once she has consulted with her lawyers.

The Council Speaker has confirmed to me that councillors have been given that report.

Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter

Patricia De Lille has one final battle to fight before she leaves office.

Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter

Quite a host of city officials are implicated in this report.
