Service providers to march against questionable SAPS tender with Wesbank

Police Minister Bheki Cele

A group of black automotive service providers will on Tuesday stage a protest in Tshwane against what they claim to be a massive graft behind SA Police Service (Saps) awarding of a questionable tender to a major bank.

About 200 business people are to hand over a memorandum to national police commissioner Lieutenant-General Khehla Sithole.

Mercy Makwerere, spokesperson for the automotive suppliers and owner of B&M Auto, which has been servicing Saps vehicles for 20 years, said: “Without following of any tender processes, we saw Wesbank being appointed as the administrator and a company responsible for servicing Saps vehicles.

“Insiders have informed us that Wesbank is being paid R20 million per month. Because servicing of vehicles is not their core business, they have to rely on us.

“This simply shows that those who are now in charge do not know what they are doing. Saps national spokesperson Major General Mathapelo Peters was not available for comment.
