Letter to the Editor – Something is rotten in the province’s supply chain process
Posted on November 3, 2015 by Daisy Myburgh
By Ann McDonnell, MPL, DAKZN Spokesperson on Conservation:

Something is definitely rotten in the state of the Province’s supply chain management process.

That an individual, without an Aviation Operating Certificate (AOC) was awarded a contract to run KZN’s rhino anti-poaching air wing would be farcical were it not so serious.

The successful bidder is a former hospital CFO in KZN’s Health department who now runs security contracts for Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.

In spite of having no experience, he was allegedly asked to quote along with nine other businesses for a two month extension of the air wing contract.

That the system allows a bidder without any experience to win a contract and then try to outsource aircraft, pilots, AOC and the requisite insurance is astounding.

It is almost a relief that he was not able to persuade other contractors to do the work.

If government is serious about growing the economy, the practise of giving tenders to people who immediately sub contract for a profit must be stopped.

Not only is it corrupt, it favours connected individuals and is expensive for both government and taxpayers.

"He said his competitors felt entitled to the contract, and he expected them to assist him"....

That is the chilling mentality that is ruining us! :evil:

Durban - Former chief executive of South African National Parks (SANParks), Dr David Mabunda, has been appointed head of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.

Spokesman, Musa Mntambo, confirmed that Mabunda would be at the helm on a three-year contract.

This comes a year after he was appointed interim chief executive after the suspension of Dr Bandile Mkhize amid allegations of a failed attempt at rolling out a new staff management and payment structure.

Speaking to the media in October, board chairman, Comfort Ngidi, revealed that Mkhize was paid out a year’s salary to bow out.

At the same event, Mabunda set out his turnaround strategy which included creating stability and growing Ezemvelo’s revenue and strengthening stewardship.
