Major fraud probe suppressed

Major fraud probe suppressed

The board of Durban's TradePort will not hear, see or speak evil of President Zuma's favoured Nkandla contractor who Noseweek can show has defrauded the TradePort of many millions. You can guess why.

Reckless scheme aimed at pushing millions to front companies.

In June 2014, The Star newspaper revealed that a company involved in the Nkandla scandal and officials at Durban’s Dube TradePort had fraudulently introduced token BEE partners into a construction contract, in order to inflate the cost of an office block there by several millions of rands.

The 3,000m², two-storey office block was to be occupied by Air Chefs, SAA’s in-house catering service.

The Star reporters appear not to have realised that the so-called “Air Chefs” contract was only one of several incidents of corruption identified by Paul O’Sullivan in a damning series of reports now seen by Noseweek.
