The Special Investigation Unit (SIU) is probing suspected wasteful expenditure incurred by the department of public works during the refurbishment of a parliamentary building.

SIU spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said the unit was set to investigate four other contracts for “unauthorised, irregular or fruitless and wasteful expenditure incurred by the department”. He said the alleged irregularities took place before May 22 2009.

“These projects include a probe into a contract of an official accommodation, residential accommodation, residences of sessional official refurbishment, Marks Building external renovations and total refurbishment of the 6th floor of parliament noted as 90 Plein Street.”
