Mohamed Ismail Admajee (44) has been remanded in custody by the Palm Ridge Commercial Crime Court on 22 January 2021, after he was arrested by the Germiston based Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation unit on Wednesday 20 January 2021, for alleged fraud and corruption involving approximately R64 million tender scam.
The accused was an Information Technology (IT) manager at Cell C. It is alleged that during the period 2012 to 2019, he colluded with a director of a contracted entity responsible for IT and network services at his workplace. They reportedly inflated invoices which resulted in an actual loss of over R64 million to Cell C.
The Hawks’ investigation which culminated in his arrest on Wednesday, 20 January 2021, ensued in 2020 following an internal audit that was done at the cell phone company.
The former executive is expected to make a follow-up court appearance in the same court on Tuesday, 26 January 2021 for bail application pending further investigation.
More arrests are expected.
The National Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, Lieutenant General Godfrey Lebeya commended the team for the arrest and looks forward to seeing all those involved have their day in court.
