Johannesburg - Two people were arrested by the Hawks in Pretoria and the Western Cape on Friday morning for alleged tender fraud, Gauteng police said.

Police spokesperson Tshisikhawe Ndou said: "It's alleged that the suspects were involved in the rigging of a tender worth R13m which was awarded for guarding and special services at the National Prosecuting Authority's premises in KwaZulu-Natal in 2006."

The tender contract was subsequently terminated in 2009.

Ndou said one of the arrested men was a former employee of the NPA who evaluated security and the risk environment.

The two, aged 33 and 41, face charges of fraud and corruption and will appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Monday.

More arrests were expected soon, said Ndou.

    Can this really be happening or are the journalists being paid by the ANC to write this? I hope my cynicism is unfounded. Tender fraud being investigated? They will need to employ many more agents if they are going to bring everybody to book that is involved. When can we expect a raid on the Shaik compound in Durban?

    well at least they keep on doing something. I just wonder what is going on with the Joe Block show.
