Former SAA head of procurement to testify at State Capture Commission

Former head of procurement at South African Airways (SAA) technical, Nontsasa Memela, returns to the State Capture Commission in Johannesburg on Thursday.

This will be the second time the former procurement head will be appearing at the commission.

She gave evidence in February this year and denied allegations of bribery and wrong doing.

However, Memela has been implicated in allegations of forgery after JM aviation director Vuyisile Ndzeku gave evidence in August.

The former procurement head will have to answer more questions on how an affidavit with forged signatures- instead of a title was given to Ndzeku to prove he had ownership of the land purchased from Memels’s mother.

She will also have to answer more questions of having favoured JM aviation and a US company AAR Aviation to win a R1.3 billion contract for SAA.

JM aviation is alleged to have paid R2.5 million towards Memela R3.8 million Bedfordview home.

Memela has denied these allegations in her previous testimony.
