It says the water and sanitation department will be investigated for “alleged serious maladministration and unlawful expenditure of public money” for IT services from SAP.

The presidency says investigators will also probe “any improper or unlawful conduct” by SAP. The investigation will focus on the period from January 2015 to now.

Separately, a commission is probing allegations of widespread corruption under the government of former President Jacob Zuma.

Ramaphosa became president after Zuma resigned in February amid growing national outrage.
