President Jacob Zuma has instructed the Special Investigating Unit to delve into the tender process involving LTE Consulting.
LTE Consulting was allegedly awarded a two million rand tender for water and sewer reticulation construction by Gauteng Department of Human Settlements without bidding for it.
The chairperson of the board of directors resigned from the company, saying he did not know that the company had been appointed by the Department of Human Settlements.
But, LTE Consulting CEO, Thulani Majola, says there is no way the chairperson wouldn't have known about the appointment.
Xolani Gwala spoke to Majola, about this ongoing story and the president's decision.
Listen to the interview below for more information...
We received a similar inquest from 2014 December, the matter was referred to the police station, then handled by the NPA. The NPA then made a ruling based on the evidence that was given to it on the Sweetwaters deal that there was no room for prosecution to confirm that there was any fraud conducted. The first part of that investigation, which is Sweetwaters, is null and void.— Thulani Majola, LTE Consulting CEO
What informed that decision is still pondering us. But we will provide them with the same information we sent for National Prosecuting Authority.— Thulani Majola, LTE Consulting CEO
On the Sweetwaters deal, you must understand that we're a consulting firm that was on the panel of consultants at the Gauteng's Department of Human Settlements. The projects in question, we were involved in that project from 2007, until the award of the construction works.— Thulani Majola, LTE Consulting CEO
