Hawks investigate multimillion-rand eNatis deal

2013-08-12 10:16

The Hawks are investigating a multimillion-rand eNatis contract after allegations of fraud emerged.

“The case has to do with eNatis ... that the contract (allegedly) did not go through tender processes,” Hawks spokesperson Captain Paul Ramaloko was quoted as saying by The Times today.

Tasima, the consortium allegedly at the centre of the eNatis contract, was being accused of billing the transport department R12 million for work not done, according to the newspaper.

The consortium was awarded the R403 million contract for licensing administration in 2001. From 2007 it was renewed on a month-to-month basis.

Tasima is involved in a court battle to recoup R118 million from the department in what it alleges are unpaid fees.

In an affidavit filed in court in February, the Road Traffic Management Corporation’s former CEO, Collins Letsoalo, said some of the fees claimed by Tasima were in dispute.

“This complaint relates to a claim of R12 million that was invoiced by (Tasima) for the work that it did not do. The services in question were rendered by a company called MSRD (Mandate Strategy Roadmap and Delivery) and were completed by March 2010,” he said in the affidavit.
