ANC Member of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts Nyami Booi says it's shocking that someone in prison managed to get into the State Information Technology Agency (Sita) and is still receiving payments.
This comes after the South African Police Services management appeared before Parliament's Finance committee to explain the forensic data analysis.
The company threatened to switch off the Saps system which contains some of the police forensic data.
IT in the recent 20 to 21 centuries has become part of all systems and Sita is part of national treasury and it's part of the security systems. If you can't manage that properly then there is a national security risk.— Nyami Booi, ANC Member of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts
The national interest has been compromised.— Nyami Booi, ANC Member of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts
Booi believes Boeremag member Andre Du Toit has people situated inside the Sita system who relayed information to him while he was in prison.
He has a lot of capacity from prison and that is what we don't understand that how do our public servants allow such a situation to occur. And give capacity to this particular individual and be able to manipulate the system.— Nyami Booi, ANC Member of Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts
