EOH must pay back R42 million following corrupt Microsoft deal

EOH has acknowledged overcharging the Department of Defence (DoD) in a corrupt Microsoft license deal and will pay back R41.7 million.

This was revealed by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) following an investigation into the R250 million Microsoft software licences procurement contracts awarded by the DoD.

They'll pay it back, and it'll still find it's way to the "right" hands through different deals.

Nice but I feel like we should be hearing about a lot more companies/individuals having to pay back the money.

Need the following:
  1. Pay back R41,676,493.92 + interest + legal fees
  2. Corrupter go to jail
  3. Corruptee go to jail
R42m is nothing for EOH/DoD.
Only when (2) and (3) happen will ZA start to be rid of corruption as this will send the right message.

So what happens to the DoD cadres signing this deal?
From the article.
The DoD officials involved and implicated in the irregularities have been identified and referrals of evidence will be made to DoD to institute disciplinary action.

The investigation has also uncovered evidence pointing to criminal action related to the DoD’s 2016 and 2017 procurement of Microsoft licenses.

This evidence, as required by SIU Act, will be referred to NPA and the Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigation (DPCI) for further attention.

Private sector is easy target. By all means go after them, but when is JZ going to pay back the money and or go to jail?

We don't want money paid back, that just affects the company employees in the end.

We want arrests and jail time.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

oh dear. that's like almost three times what the ceo makes, so they're probably going to have to fire a bunch of employees to be able to afford to pay that amount without impacting the board members.
