Sisulu welcomes R400m SIU tender probe

Water and Sanitation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has welcomed the Special Investigating Unit’s (SIU) move to investigate IT tenders awarded by her department.


The tenders, totaling R474 million, were awarded between 2012 and 2017 to EOH.

"The latest developments as announced by the SIU is because of the DWS’ Forensic Audit Unit, which concluded 42 investigations during the 2019/2020 financial year," said Sisulu's spokesperson Steve Motale 

He is adamant the ministry is committed to rooting out corruption. 

“Our resolve is to root out fraud and corruption which has, over the years, denied our people access to clean water and provision of decent sanitation. As we turn around the Department, we need all the necessary support from various institutions including law enforcement agencies. The war against fraud and corruption is a collective responsibility and can only be won if we put our hands on deck.

"Minister Sisulu has also issued a call that all institutions under the Department of Water and Sanitation should continue to cooperate with all law enforcement agencies, including SIU, on various investigations affecting the department.”
