The opposition is calling for heads to roll in the Bosasa scandal, having filed criminal charges against implicated individuals.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) has laid criminal charges against several prominent figures implicated in the Bosasa scandal.
ANC MP Vincent Smith, Minister of Mineral Resources Gwede Mantashe, Minister of Communications Nomvula Mokonyane, former SAA Chairperson Dudu Myeni and Deputy Minister of Justice and Correctional Services Thabang Makwetla are just some officials said to have benefitted from the company by having security systems installed in their homes, among other benefits.
Bosasa, a security company, receives billions of rands worth of tenders from the government and has been in business for years.
Some of the allegations include installing alarm systems, CCTV cameras, recording systems and electric fencing to their homes – all to the tune of over R1 million.
“The DA stands firmly against corruption and will always ensure that those who violate their oath of office are held accountable. These serious allegations must be investigated without haste, so the public knows who paid for the upgrades” said party Chief Whip John Steenhuisen.
“We believe that an investigation into the stated allegations may reveal that criminal offences were indeed committed in terms of sections 3 and 4 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act”
Steenhuisen further added that: “The failing ANC has allowed corruption to flourish and compromise its governance of the country, and South Africans can put an end to this by voting DA in 2019”.
The Judicial Commission of Inquiry into state capture has confirmed that it would be looking into the allegations.
