Ramaphosa Reading SIU Report On PPE Graft

President Cyril Ramaphosa is reading the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) report on corruption in the buying of personal protective equipment.

The Presidency on Friday said it “has received the final report of the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) into allegations of corruption by parties in the public and private sectors in the procurement of personal protective equipment at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic”.

The Presidency said it was “studying the report and will keep the public abreast of developments in this matter”.

The Presidency said it will do so in a manner that preserves information that may be or become the subject of prosecution, civil action, or disciplinary proceedings.

“It is expected the SIU report will contain information on matters that have been referred to the National Prosecutions Authority for prosecution; matters that have been referred to relevant departments or entities for disciplinary steps to be taken against their employees, and what monies have been recouped by the SIU,” said the Presidency.
