Two companies walked away with R220-million 'for doing absolutely nothing'
Blackhead, a company given an audit tender, was paid R250-million to carry out the asbestos removal in the Free State which was subsequently spent with no work being carried out. Ray White speaks to EWN Senior reporter Nthakoana Ngatane about the evidence brought to the inquiry.
