SABC to probe travel costs
Johannesburg - The SABC has ordered an investigation into its transport arrangements, after it emerged that R500 000 was paid to a private company which did not have a contract with the public broadcaster.
Eyewitness News reports that the shuttle service company transported SABC executives.
An invoice showed that SABC chairperson Ben Ngubane's own use of the transfer company amounted to nearly R9 000 per day.
Ngubane said the company needed to be prosecuted for "daylight robbery" and that the money paid to them needs to be recovered.
He said a task team which was appointed to look into procurement, mismanagement of funds and other issues at the public broadcaster will investigate.
In 2011, it emerged that the SABC had deviated from tender procedures and leased luxury vehicles to the tune of R20m.
