Not so fast. It is a R265.3-million tender. They have been paid R13 million so far without providing any services.
Ha, ok that seems more realistic from the ANC and their ilk. Thought for a second they had lost their "Midas" touch.

I look forward to the day when some good news is reported on the front pages : "SA experiences a corruption-free day". But then again, being South Africa, that's going to be a long wait.

ABT Telecoms could reportedly not provide the promised services because it does not have the necessary telecoms licences or infrastructure.

:unsure:

When the qualification criteria for tenders generally is 1 or more of:
% of BBEEE staff
% of tender award going to kickbacks
% of family of the tender adjudicators family owning shares

You're gonna have a bad time
