Prime Minister Limpopo Stan Matabasa welcomed the report of the Special Investigation Unit on a bid of R15.3 million for the provision of temporary accommodation at the Tarana Hostel in Tzaneen, Limpopo.
Mathabatha referred the contract to SIU for investigation last July.
SIU has discovered that the contract was fraudulently acquired by the Aventino Group. The company and its director, Constance Morara, have been charged with bid-related corruption, along with five employees of the Housing and Development Board, a subsidiary of the National Bureau of Human Residence.
Willie Mosoma, a spokesperson for Masabasa, said the prime minister was pleased that the investigation did not find any misconduct by state housing officials.
“Prime Minister Matabasa is urging the Housing and Development Board and those who are regularly pointed out about the whole issue to return all the money they have to pay to the Limpopo government. And it is very clear that the Department of Traditional Affairs is not involved, so as the Limpopo State Government, Prime Minister Masabasa has all the money to be paid to Limpopo so that he can continue to develop the people of Limpopo. It is very clear to say that you have to return. “
SIU completed a survey on the contract to build 40 huts at the hostel last year.
The study also revealed that of the 192 units originally budgeted, only 40 have been built in Tarana so far.
A similar imperfect structure was also built at Burgers Fort.
So far, contractors have been paid 2.5 million rants, according to SIU. The Investigation Department will file a civil suit in a special trial to set aside the contract and recover the funds paid to the company.
