Contractor arrested for fraud
Johannesburg - A contractor to the KwaZulu-Natal department of public works was arrested for fraud on Tuesday, the department said.
The Hawks made the arrest as part of an investigation into tender fraud, said department spokesperson Sureshinee Govender.
Contracts to companies controlled by the man had been awarded in line with the government's equity policies.
The tender documents fraudulently indicated that the companies were controlled by black women - a practise known as "fronting".
More arrests were expected, Govender said.
