ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe has been implicated in a multimillion rand tender which was allegedly awarded without following proper procurement processes.
According to Mail & Guardian, the North-West development department made a R49 million payment to a linked to Mabe trust in June last year to develop an app for dry cleaning and laundry services.
However, its alleged board members questioned the transaction and decided to hold Mabe accountable.
The ANC spokesperson was an ANC MP at the time and wasn’t allowed to receive benefits from tenders with government.
The Mail & Guardian’s Thanduxolo Jika says: “Pule Mabe’s involvement, when he says he was not directly involved, he’s a patent holder in that. I did a presentation in Supra [Mahumapelo]’s offices to his officials in January 2017 when this entity did not even exist.”
