JOHANNESBURG – The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) said it was investigating a major-general who allegedly awarded defence tender contracts to his spouse.

The tenders were reportedly worth an estimated R210 million.

“We can’t comment on that as you can see they quoted me correctly; the matter is under investigation, It will be difficult for me to comment.”
