SAP (fingered for alleged involvement in Gupta kickbacks) can learn from MTN

Business software behemoth SAP is sweating after its alleged involvement in a huge Gupta kickback deal made headlines in South Africa.

Investigative journalism unit AmaBhungane says SAP agreed to the payment of a 10% “sales commission” to a Gupta company in return for Transnet deals.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Techcentral Editor Duncan McLeod.

McLeod spoke about how SAP should deal with this scandal.

He reckons the multinational can learn some lessons from MTN.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

MTN was able to clear its name, to some extent.
