Transnet probes ports authority boss over R300m security fencing

Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) boss Pepi Silinga is under fire for security fencing upgrades in ports in KwaZulu-Natal.

The state-owned company has confirmed that it launched a probe against Silinga internally, while the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) has also joined the fray.

Silinga is accused of irregularly appointing his former employer, the Coega Development Corporation, as the implementing agent for the fencing of three ports   – Durban, Richards Bay and Saldanha Bay – whose scope for security upgrades costs have escalated from approximately R80-million to R300-million combined.
