Sky-diving tenderpreneurs risk crash-landings

Airports executives flailing in a welter of bribery and graft.

The controversy flying around the Airports Company of South Africa (ACSA) is likely to suck into its vortex some major corporate players. They are alleged to have participated in its elaborate tender-rigging scams and general culture of bribery and corruption over the past decade. On the chopping block is CEO Bongani Maseko and swathes of his fellow executives.

Private business fingered as helpful enablers include airport shopping entrepreneur Gerald Hertzenberg, City Lodge Hotel executives and their empowerment partner Bulelani Ngcuka, former head of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), as well as a host of businesses operating at airports. 

Leading the attack to expose this latest alleged iniquity is the former chairman of Chevron South Africa, Vincent Raseroka, who told Noseweek “the system sucks”. He’s an aggrieved BEE partner in a decade-old hotel bid that he lost by a hair because of dodgy dealing at the airports authority. He is determined to sue the Acsa executives individually as he’s “tired of being treated like shit”.
