Global software giant SAP was warned five times over five years that paying commissions for help securing public sector contracts in South Africa was an invitation to corruption, but for the most part these warnings were ignored, former SAP Africa chief financial officer Deena Pillay told the country’s Special Investigating Unit. News24 reports that Pillay, who so far has refused to talk about his role in the scandal, is one of the three executives who resigned from SAP after Amabhungane #GuptaLeaks investigations revealed that the company had paid over R100-million in commissions to Gupta-controlled companies for help securing software deals at Transnet and Eskom.
