RIP | ANC-Connected Businessman Dies

There is no greater irony than when someone who was alleged to have been a beneficiary of rigged personal protective equipment (PPE) at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic suddenly dies of illness.

Not that one is celebrating death of auditor Roshan Morar, who benefitted extraordinarily from different government departments for the supply of PPE in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, however, It shows a surprising amount of irony, because a number of people lost their lives due to PPE corruption.

Morar's death was confirmed this afternoon by the company which he founded, Morar incorporated.

He died in hospital in the early hours of this morning after battling illness for some time. He was aged 56.

The company waxed lyrical about the significant contribution he made particularly in the financial sector for black people.

"It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our founder Mr Roshan Morar of Morar Incorporated. The directors and staff of Morar Incorporated express their deepest condolences to the Morar family during this very difficult time and would like to assure them that Roshan’s legacy will continue to live within Morar Incorporated," the company posted on their official Facebook page.

His auditing firm, founded in the mid-1990s, was one of the leading black-owned auditing companies in the country employing quite a number of people.

Although his associates in his company spoke so kindly of him. Plenty of South Africans will remember him as a significantly connected Tenderpreneur who benefitted from government contracts through his association with the RET faction.

It's worth remembering that during former President Jacob Zuma's term in office, Morar held several positions in state owned entities where his vast business interests allegedly benefitted a great deal.

Just over a month ago, civil society organisation Corruption Watch came out guns blazing against the KwaZulu-Natal treasury department over its decision to Morar in its supply chain department.

They had doubts about him because it was claimed that he was one among those responsible for the suspected theft of Covid-19 funds, which directly affected many employees in the healthcare industry.
