Corruption Watch said it is preparing to take further action based on the Constitutional Courts findings that declared illegal and invalid the award of a R10-billion contract by Sassa to Cash Paymaster services.

Corruption Watch Executive Director David Lewis said they urge the police to undertake an investigation into allegations of bribery surrounding the Sassa contract. 

Lewis added that the constitutional court has made a very important ruling in a case involving one of the largest public tender awards ever made in South Africa. There were irregularities in the process of awarding the tender.

“The irregularities and the process should be questioned. Should look beneath the irregularities and ask in whose interest was the irregularity perpetrated and for what reason was the irregularity perpetrated. That is what has led us to ask the police to look ask those questions” said Lewis.
