Director vehemently denies defrauding Burundi telecoms co

A heated conversation erupted between CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies and director of Dr VS Mncube Consulting.

This follows a forensic report into irregularities in Airports Company SA (Acsa) supply chain management that led to three senior managers being suspended.

Dr VS Mncube Consulting conducted the forensic investigations on behalf of the ACSA board and presented its report to the board in August.

The three are alleged to be involved in bribery, corruption and unfair practices within Acsa's supply chain management.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Dr Vusi Mncube about these investigations and allegations that his company defrauded a telecoms company in Burundi back in 2006.

According to reports, a warrant of arrest was issued against Dr VS Mncube in Burundi for defrauding Onatel.

Yes there was a matter like that. However, the person who would know the details of it is the guy who was chairman at the time... I personally was never in Burundi and don't intend to be in Burundi.

Mncube said the matter is still pending with the Public Protectors office and did not wish to further engage on its details.

Mncube says his company went through all the processes when it was selected to do forensic investigations on behalf of Acsa. The company has done other forensic work for private companies, he said.
