Themba Godi, the chairperson of Parliament’s standing committee on public accounts (Scopa), this week again called for a stricter eye to be kept on public expenditure.

This included any deviations from standard bidding processes and expansions of existing contracts without valid reasons, practices that Godi said were becoming the norm rather than the exception.
