Lesufi Denies Tender Irregularity, Claims ‘Forces at Play’ to Get Him

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says there are forces at play who want to assassinate his character for political expediency.

Lesufi was reacting to a City Press report that he convened a “secret meeting” to discuss departmental tenders.

The allegations have been levelled against Lesufi after the emergence of a recording of an alleged secret meeting in which he apparently insinuated that he could bend rules on tender processes.

In it, Lesufi ostensibly tell a group of people that if they want to be awarded tenders, they needed to talk to him and then apply through the correct channels in order for record purposes.

Lesufi’s spokesperson Steve Mabona says the sole intention of the voice recording that is being circulated is to both tarnish his reputation and create a perception of bias towards specific people or their companies

“MEC Lesufi rejects this with the contempt it deserves and wants to assure the people and specifically contractors of Gauteng that the GDE runs a fair and transparent process of appointing and allocating work to, contracted service providers.”

Meanwhile the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) has called for Lesufi’s removal from office following the claims of meddling in tenders processes.
