SPECIAL PROJECTS

Projects related to gross corruption, maladministration and wasteful expenditure within government departments like: Social Services, Higher Education and Communications

Our Special Projects Portfolio contains several projects related to gross corruption, maladministration and wasteful expenditure within Social Services, Broadcasting and Higher Education. 

In Social Services we dealt with the cancellation of the Cash Paymaster Services (CPS) contract. In Broadcasting we successfully influenced the cancellation of the Lorna Vision contract; as well as the wasteful expenditure associated with Hlaudi Motsoeneng during his tenure as Chief Operation Officer (COO) of SABC, with James Aguma as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In Higher Education OUTA is currently investigating allegation of corruption within the Services SETA, Construction SETA, ETDP SETA and all other 18 SETAs.  

Other points of action:

  • Replace the SASSA photo with one that represents Special Projects.

  • Remove all core focus areas, on our page we will not mention them as they are already detailed on our summary above.

  • State that the entire Special Projects website content needs to be changed. We need to reflect all projects within the portfolio which means adding Higher Education and adding each SETA as a project.

SASSA SOCIAL GRANT DEBACLE

Outa is challenging the CPS because of misuse of beneficiary personal information to market products that are no related to grants; such as selling airtime and funeral policies; and corruption. Former Minister of Social Development and the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) appears to have misrepresented many facts in order to keep the SASSA/CPS contract going. She created and appointed work streams to prepare SASSA to take over grant payments.

SASSA WASTEFUL EXPENDITURE, CORRUPTION AND TENDER IRREGULARITIES.

According to records obtained by OUTA, there is no proof of food distribution. This is extremely concerning given the millions paid over to Azande.  In addition, given the small pool of taxes flowing into government we believe that a more cost-effect supplier should have won the bid, without compromising the health of vulnerable citizens.

SABC COO – HLAUDI MOTSOENENG TENDER IRREGULARITIES AND CORRUPTION 

With SABC’s declining financial woes, OUTA is concerned that the abuse by SABC executives of state funds for personal benefit is unacceptable and culprits like James Aguma and Faith Muthambi – who ratified Hlaudi’s appointment –  need to be held accountable and repay funds illegitimately gained.
