The BEE merry-go-round

The BEE merry-go-round

CIPRO don't have funds for a Afrikaans/English translator according to senior manager Trad Marks? Maybe I must learn to speak BEE language!

Man this is hectic...I can't believe that this still happens in SA. How on earth can CIPRO even think of paying Valor IT a payment of R50M without all the contracts being in place. For sure that money is gone now... History... and they will never get it back. Darko? Well he should be indicted, and someone should check his spending, and conduct a forensic audit on his affairs... something stinks here again, and it takes Noseweek to expose it.... damn it.... where is the oversight from the ANC Govt? Why the hell are they not watching us, tax paying South Africans money? Investigate them Noseweek, and hold them accountable and don't stop until they're all in jail... well done to you and your staff for an excellent expose. Damn corrupt ba*$#%s in this country.
