Carter, Ms D to ask the Minister of Social Development
Whether any action has been taken, be it departmentally and/or criminally, against a certain person (name and details furnished) following a forensic report that found that the specified person had received monetary kickbacks in respect of tenders that were awarded; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the further relevant details?
- The forensic investigation was conducted by Provincial Treasury on behalf of the Department of Social Development, KZN.
- The report from Provincial Treasury indicates the following: -
- The reports were completed and issued in October 2012 by that time Mr Dlomo had left the Department of Social Development and was employed at the National Intelligence Agency. The recommendation by Provincial Treasury was that the allegations and findings be forwarded to National Intelligence Agency for their consideration and action.
- Regarding the criminal action, the case was registered against Mr Dlomo under Umbilo, case number 217/09/2010. The Investigating Officer is on record as being Captain Themba Sibiya. Following the Departments request for information, Provincial Treasury contacted Captain Sibiya who informed them that the case was still pending.
- The Provincial Treasury then requested a written response as to the reason why the case was still pending. Captain Sibiya had agreed to provide the response but it has not been received as yet.
- Furthermore, the former Minister of intelligence, Dr S. Cwele was officially informed about the outcome of the investigation and accordingly advised to implement the necessary action. To date the MEC for Finance or that of the Social Development did not receive any response from the Minister.
