Public Protector ‘probing Malema’

2011-11-04 14:31

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is reportedly probing claims of irregular tenders awarded by the Limpopo government to a company linked to ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema.

The outcome of the investigation was expected before the end of the year, the Public Protector’s office told the SABC today.

At the centre of the investigation was On-Point Engineering, a company in which Malema reportedly held shares, and state entities involved in awarding the tenders to the company.

Malema was also being investigated by the Hawks.

Madonsela’s spokesperson Kgalalelo Masibi told the SABC the Hawks and the Public Protector had pinpointed their respective areas of investigation to avoid any duplication.

During the probe, questions would also be asked about the involvement of Malema’s Ratanang Family Trust.
