Johannesburg - Gauteng officials will be criminally charged for tender irregularities, the provincial health department said.

"The Gauteng Department of Health investigation into alleged wrongful awarding of R32-million security contracts has recommended that criminal charges be instituted against the chairperson...," it said in a statement.

"It was also recommended that four officials who were part of the BEC be charged departmentally for their role in the said process." 

This was revealed by Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu in a written reply to questions in the Gauteng legislature.
