President, Cyril Ramaphosa, has expressed disappointment that there are people who may be using the Covid-19 crisis to unlawfully enrich themselves.
Ramaphosa, who made the remarks in a press statement has also announced that he has given support to law enforcement agencies to investigate all allegations of corruption involved in the awarding of tenders related to the pandemic.
Several reports have revealed that some companies that scored millions in contracts to provide services for the health department, were allegedly run by relatives of ANC heavyweights.
President Ramaphosa says police should investigate without fear or favor.
He says it’s unconscionable that there are people who may be using this health crisis to unlawfully enrich themselves.
The statement comes in the wake of reports that Royal Bhaca projects, a company owned by Ramaphosa’s spokesperson Khusela Diko’s husband, Chief Thandisizwe Diko, received a R125 million personal protective equipment tender from the Gauteng health department.
