South Africa’s Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, otherwise known as ‘The Hawks’ says it is digging into a dubious 2019 City of Tshwane fuel tender worth around half a billion rand that was awarded to three companies, one of which, in turn, paid R15 million to companies linked to the EFF, its leader, Julius Malema, and future EFF secretary-general, Marshall Dlamini. The amaBhungane Centre for Investigative Journalism reports that in June 2020, the Pretoria High Court set aside the tender, citing the “irrational” and “unfair” way in which it was evaluated and the company awarded it was allowed to game the system – but the court was not asked to engage with the suspect payments. A Hawks spokesperson confirmed they were investigating this case, but did not say what [the] investigation is looking into.
