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
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
