Medic denies that family members doctored tenders

A Tshwane doctor has denied he used family members to benefit from several multimillion-rand Transport Education Training Authority (Teta) tenders.

The doctor, who cannot be named because he has not been charged, denies that contracts awarded to his company by Teta, to train taxi drivers, during 2006 and 2007 to the tune of R10-million were "underhand".

This comes after an investigation by IRS Forensic Investigations, commissioned by a disgruntled former associate of the doctor, found that "two members of Teta staff directly benefited" from the doctor's company receiving the contracts".

The case has been handed to the Special Investigations Unit, which has passed it on to the Hawks.
