The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) says R13.3 billion worth of government Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) expenditure is subject to investigation. SIU head ADV. Andy Mothibi says 26-percent of the entire investigation is finalised.
Mothibi also says political pressure is just one of the reasons that played a role in the awarding of PPE tenders.
Some companies were decided upon even before the supply chain management process started.
