Johannesburg - Limpopo roads and transport head Ntau Letebele, who is under an internal investigation over a multimillion rand tender, has resigned from the department, according to a report on Wednesday.

The tender allegedly partly benefited former ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

The New Age reported that Letebele handed in a 24-hour resignation notice on Monday.

"We can confirm that the head of department has tendered a resignation letter and we have accepted it," department spokesperson Joshua Kwapa told the newspaper.

The resignation came days after the announcement of an investigation into the awarding of a R53m contract to On-Point Engineering.

In October, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela found that the conduct of Letebele in respect of the awarding of the bid to On-Point, was "improper and constituted maladministration".

Madonsela found tenders awarded to On-Point Engineering by the department were unlawful.

She found On-Point and Malema benefited improperly from the contract.

Malema's business partner Lesiba Gwangwa is chief executive of On-Point.
