Dirco aware of 'cash for tender' claims against Clayson Monyela
Monyela has been accused of offering government contracts in return for cash.
JOHANNESBURG - The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (Dirco) says it's aware of claims that the head of South Africa's public diplomacy, Clayson Monyela, has been accused of offering government contracts in return for cash.
On Monday night, eNCA programme CheckPoint claimed that Monyela had asked a businessman for money and promised that he would then get contracts from his department in return.
Dirco said it was aware that these claims have been made, but that it is not going to comment on them at the moment.
Monyela himself has also said he's not going to speak about them at this stage.
But the programme claims Monyela faked an email while asking for money from a businessman to finish the windows on his home in Limpopo.
It also said Monyela then promised that person government contracts and said he would get more contracts in the future.
