Presidency receives SIU final report into procurement of personal protective equipment
 
The Presidency has received the final report of the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) into allegations of corruption by parties in the public and private sectors in the procurement of personal protective equipment at the onset of the COVID-19
pandemic.
 
The Presidency is studying the report and will keep the public abreast of developments in this matter.
 
The Presidency will do so in a manner that preserves information that may be or become the subject of prosecution, civil action or disciplinary proceedings.
 
It is expected the SIU report will contain information on matters that have been referred to the National Prosecutions Authority for prosecution; matters that have been referred to relevant departments or entities for disciplinary steps to be taken against their employees, and what monies have been recouped by the SIUz
 
The SIU is empowered in law to take these steps in the course of its work and as soon as it deems fit.
