South Africa: Director and Accomplice Appears in Court for Alleged Corruption

press release

Northern Cape — The Northern Cape Department of Transport, Safety and liaison, IT Assistant Director Dennis Peterson (41), appeared before the Kimberly Magistrate's Court for alleged procurement corruption on Wednesday, 10 January 2018, after he was arrested by the Hawks on the same day.

The Hawks' Serious Corruption Crime unit led investigations started in June 2017, regarding the alleged violation of the procurement process dating back to April 2016.

It is alleged that three quotations were sourced from different IT service providers. However a specific company was contacted later to resubmit a revised quote and was ultimately awarded a tender valued at just over R38 000, following which a gratification was allegedly paid to Peterson.

The implicated company's owner, Mosimanegape Victor Motaung (38) was also arrested separately and appeared in the same court.

Both accused have been released on R3000 bail each and the case has been postponed to 16 February 2017 pending further investigations.
