SITA cracks whip on Gauteng Broadband Network project
A report by ITWeb that the implementation of the multibillion-rand Gauteng Broadband Network (GBN) project was at risk of extended delays following allegations of corruption and non-compliance. These complaints prompted the State Information Technology Agency (SITA) to demand answers from Altron Nexus.

However, SMEs claim that this was not done, and that they were sidelined from the R2,8 billion project.
