The ANC's coalition partner, the African Independent Congress (AIC), has shifted the blame for the R1.9bn toilet tender saga from Ekurhuleni Mayor Mzwandile Masina to former Ekurhuleni mayor, Mondli Gungubela, saying the tender was awarded before Masina's time.
AIC regional secretary Yongama Mabeng said the party believed Gungubela should answer for the allegations instead.
The party believes an attack on Masina is an attack on the coalition.
This comes after Gauteng Human Settlements MEC Lebogang Maile wrote a letter to Masina after an amaBhungane investigative report revealed that the metro spent R1.9bn on a toilet tender that was an alleged "get-rich-quick scheme for underperforming contractors".
