16 August 2010
The Human Settlements Minister Tokyo Sexwale today praised the Special Investigations Unit for its work into housing corruption.
The work that the Special Investigations Unit has been doing has resulted in the arrest and conviction of hundreds of government officials.
The minister stated that the extent of corruption in South Africa is worrying. Sexwale said “it was not all doom and gloom in the government housing programme”.
Willie Hofmeyer, Head of the Special Investigations Unit said “investigation into housing corruption is now turning to large contractors. We are looking at twenty contracts to the total of R2billion, so the average contract amount we are talking about is R100million per contract”.
