Two more officials in Limpopo's roads and transport department have been fingered in the International Transport Convention saga.

Department spokesman Boikie Tsedu said yesterday: "We have handed to the police in Pretoria the names of two more officials whom [we suspect] had a hand in the irregular activities [connected with] the International Transport Convention [in May 2005]."

He said the officials had not been suspended.

"We have handed documents to the police to help them speed up the investigation. We have also made recommendations.

"Only after the investigations are complete will the police be able to act on our recommendations," said Tsedu.

Three months ago, the department laid a charge of fraud and corruption against its former head, Ben Mehale.

It has demanded that he pay back the R25,6million he allegedly spent on the International Transport Convention without authorisation.

Police spokesman Phuti Setati said officers were pursuing their investigations in Limpopo.
