Businessman Hamilton Ndlovu has been slapped with another preservation order after the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) was granted an order to freeze R42 million worth of his luxury properties and funds.
According to a statement seen by EBNewsDaily, Ndlovu is linked to eight companies which last year secured contracts from the NHLS worth a total of R172-million for the procurement of personal protective equipment (PPE).
“On 31 August 2021, the SIU and the NHLS obtained an interim interdict in the Tribunal preserving properties and funds under the control of Mr Ndlovu worth approximately R42-million,” it said.
“The SIU and NHLS have ascertained that the transactions were obtained by abusing the emergency procurement procedures that were adopted by the NHLS to respond to the Covid-19 disaster during the first half of 2020.”
