Cosatu: “Warnings against PPE linked corruption fell on deaf ears”


Cosatu said its forewarnings against possible corruption in connection to personal protective equipment (PPE) was put to deaf ears.

The trade union further said during the period when PPE contracts were announced, it sounded an early note of warning to the ANC.

However, Bheki Ntshalintshali, Cosatu General-Secretary said the warnings were taken with levity hands.

In Gauteng, over 160 companies are currently ongoing investigations for irregularities in tenders related to PPE.

Gauteng is facing investigation(s) with a R2 billion PPE tender scandal and have been proven to be the most-looted in the country.
