Illegal collusive tendering has been going on for a long time.
South Africa’s major furniture removers may have been cheating the public on a grand scale for the past half century.
In 1976 when I was a Financial Mail journalist, I probed the widespread tendering collusion in the industry. Some of the same names that featured in that exposé all those years ago have come up again in the Competition Commission’s current extensive investigation into price collusion in the industry.
It seems it never stopped.
