- news24.com | 2 weeks ago

Tshwane Mayor Stevens Mokgalapa has ordered an investigation into a three-year tender to provide the municipality with fuel, after allegations of tender irregularities and corruption surfaced.

Mokgalapa ordered the probe on Monday following an article by amaBhungane that detailed several issues surrounding a fuel tender worth around R500m, which was awarded to Balimi Barui Trading (BBT) and two other companies. AmaBhungane reported BBT should never have won the tender as its prices were high, claiming the company's director, Hendricks Kganyago, had paid millions to EFF leader Julius Malema.
