Radio 702’s Bongani Bingwa spoke to amaBhungane’s Susan Comrie about a forensic report published by City Press that implicates junior staff and senior executives at Transnet allegedly involved in corruption at the state-owned enterprise worth billions.

Comrie said the report was over, “R6-billion paid on contracts that went to China South and China North rail”.

She added: “If you go back, amaBhungane started covering these stories back in 2014, and it is one of the meticulous parts of investigative journalism where you are just scratching at the surface, but it is not apparent until you see the big picture.”
