While many people lost their jobs during the height of the Corona virus and were struggling to make ends meet; employed government employees were busy uploading their names onto the persal system to benefit from the TERS.

Unfortunately; the persal system (which confirms that one is employed by government); was unable to detect that they are already employed and therefore fraudulantly getting paid double. They got their salaries and TERS.

When corruption rules from the head down; it's usually every man for himself. Greed and corruption often dictates that government officials should benefit at the expense of the poor and the needy.

The Special Investigating Unit officials; briefed the Parliament's portfolio committee on Employment and Labour on the progress of its probe into TERS corruption.

They informed the portfolio committee; that Hawks have arrested 11 people as part of ongoing investigations into the abuse of the Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (TERS).

During the brief; Kaizer Kganyago from the SIU said; "The 11 people who were arrested is in relation to individual cases where they were defrauding the system. We further found that more then 6,100 people got TERS money but those people are on persal of government, meaning they work for government and they also applied for TERS and the system did not detect that."

Some of the TERS money was paid to deceased people, prisoners and foreign nationals; in a bid to further transfer it back to the fraudsters.

Many people did not benefit from the TERS for various reasons; but one of the reasons was that it got into the pockets of greedy and corrupt government officials.
