SIU says it’s ‘progressing very well’ in COVID-19 procurement investigations

Spokesperson for the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) Kaizer Kganyago said they are progressing well, despite their unwillingness to discuss details of the cases under investigation that pertains to COVID-19.

The President is the custodian of that report and he has made the decision that he will release that at a specific time. We have indicated to him that we are progressing very well. The one that we have agreed on is the fact that in cases where we have outcomes, we are going to go ahead and deal with those outcomes.”

President Cyril Ramaphosa has given the SIU the task to investigate allegations of corruption that happened during procurement of goods and services during the national state of disaster.

In July, the President signed the proclamation and has instructed the SIU that every six weeks he expects interim reports.

Kganyago said they handed over the first report to President Ramaphosa on 2 September and have met with him.

He explained how far the investigations have moved:

We were saying to him that we are looking at 700 companies, and the value of that at the time was round about R7.5 billion worth of contracts. But by saying that, we are not saying that all R7.5 billion is irregular, we are just placing the value of the contracts at the time we are looking at.”
