5 Dec Interview: Sita CEO Setumo Mohapi
Thank you for listening to the TechCentral podcast. In this episode, Duncan McLeod talks to Setumo Mohapi, CEO of the State IT Agency (Sita), about the crackdown he is leading on corruption at the agency and his plans to transform it. In the podcast, Mohapi reveals that he has received death threats for his moves to clean up Sita. He explains why he's not backing down, why he has fired several employees, reported cases to the Hawks and other authorities, and will not hesitate to reveal the names of those suspected of underhanded dealings. “If you have been stealing, we will find you,” he says in the interview. “When we find you, we will then discipline you. And if you go through that process (and are found guilty), we will fire you." Mohapi talks in detail about what he found when he joined Sita in 2015 and how he is trying to turn around the organisation -- and why he believes he is making solid progress. It's a great, wide-ranging discussion about one of the key agencies in government. Don't miss it!
