Johannesburg - The Zondo commission will continue to hear from witnesses in relation to irregularities connected to tender contracts awarded by state-owned entity Transnet.
On Tuesday the commission heard from Tshiamo Sedumedi, a director at MNS Attorneys, who detailed his law firm’s investigations into Transnet awarding of contract related to the procurement of locomotives.
Sedumedi is expected to continue with his evidence this morning and will be followed by actuarial scientist Allister Chabi.
Sedumedi explained that their investigation primarily focused on the tender to procure 1064 locomotives. The investigation then expanded to include the procurement of 95 and 100 locomotives.
He said the investigation also expanded to include the Transnet Durban relocation project. These tenders have previously been mentioned at the inquiry by various witnesses. Sedumedi’s job was to fill in the gaps in relation to tenders and what MNS found during its investigations.
