Businessman and entrepreneur Hamilton Ndlovu has been ordered to repay back a R158 million received from an irregular PPE contract.
The multi-million rand tender worth R172 million was awarded by the National Health laboratory Services to Ndlovu and his associated companies.
Ndlovu has been ordered by the Special Tribunal to pay back a R158 million that he received.
In 2020 an internal report by the Special investigating Unit uncovered serious acts of criminality in the awarding of the PPE contract.
It was later discovered that only R15 million was used to purchase the required PPEs. The SIU was then granted powers to freeze R42 million in assets belonging to Ndlovu.
