EOH chief executive Stephen van Coller has denied that the group – which is one of the largest technology services companies in Africa – is not on the verge of being blacklisted by the State Information Technology Group (SITA).

This follows a Business Day report that stated the company – which is emerging from a series of corruption scandals linked to government contracts – could soon be blacklisted from conducting business with government by the state IT agency.

A blacklisting would mean that the multi-subsidiary firm would not be able to do business with government for a set period.
