Tiso Blackstar's Karyn Maughan analyses the press briefing held by Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Michael Masutha.

Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Michael Masutha held a press briefing on Monday.

The minister pinpointed some officials that are going to undergo precautionary suspension following allegations of misconduct in connection with Bosasa.

Specialist reporter at Tiso Blackstar Karyn Maughan who is following the story, says it was a large press conference and the minister revealed that Sondela IT continues to do business with South Africa.

Because the security management in a section of his department had failed to properly prepare a business plan and the relevant tender documents, Sondela IT which is a Bosasa company continues to provide South Africa's courts with security services.

Subsequently, because of this failure to provide this business plan and that tender document, that contract which is extremely lucrative is extended on a month-to-month basis.

She adds that the minister has placed one official under precautionary suspension until an explanation of the extraordinary delays in finalising those simple deals is fothcoming.
