JOHANNESBURG - A sub-contractor says he deserves the more than R20-million he pocketed.

The state capture inquiry is this week probing an asbestos contract worth R255-million by the Free State government.

Abel Manyike’s Ori Group is one of the companies that benefited from that tender.

He was sub-contracted to do an assessment audit on 300,000 houses in Free State.

He charged the provincial government over R20-million for the job.

Manyike justifies the amount he charged, saying it was a reasonable fee based on the scope of work assigned to him.
