African Development Bank denies that the bank is investigating possible collusion by construction companies in bank-financed projects in SA.

South Africa’s largest investor, the Public Investment Corporation (PIC), says construction firms recently fined R1.46bn for colluding to fix tenders for soccer stadiums, roads and other major projects, should claw back bonuses from the crooked executives who fixed the projects.

The South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa) has added it voice to the condemnation of collusion in the building sector.

Various cities across South Africa are planning to lodge civil damages claims against construction firms involved in the development of their respective 2010 FIFA World Cup stadiums.

Werksmans Attorneys director Paul Coetser says the Construction Fast Track Settlement Process has worked well.

The Competition Commission has reached a settlement with 15 construction firms, who have agreed to pay fines to the tune of R1.46 billion for collusive tendering.
