FULLY CONTROL EVERYWHERE – Minister Michael Masutha said Sondolo IT will continue to render its services on a month-to-month basis pending the appointment of a new service provider. Sondolo has specialist teams of project managers and highly trained technicians nationwide to undertake IT installations and security system installations. These professionals also maintain the systems and equipment. Sondolo Integrated Technology focuses on clients with large-scale operations. Our mastery at combining a diverse range of products from world-class suppliers into a bespoke integrated solution has won us the loyalty of many high-profile clients in the private and public sectors.
25 FEBRUARY 2019 – Justice Minister Michael Masutha said African Global Operations subsidiary Sondolo IT will continue to provide security services to South Africa’s courts for now. He said this is due to its failure to prepare a business case and the required tender documents in time for a new contract procurement process. However, an audit and advisory firm will still be reviewing all security contracts awarded to the firm, formerly called Bosasa.
This follows explosive revelations at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry of bribery and corruption involving Bosasa managers and government officials. Masutha said Sondolo IT will continue to render its services on a month-to-month basis pending the appointment of a new service provider on a quotation basis.
In 2008, the company was formally contracted to provide support and maintenance of CCTV networks and access control systems for court buildings among other services.
This contract was concluded in 2015 but in September of the same year, an additional period of 36 months was awarded to the company. At the same, an official from security management within the Correctional Services Department has been placed on precautionary suspension after being implicated in the irregular procurement of services on behalf of the Zondo Commission.
Sondolo IT has been playing a significant role with its unique technology offering. Apart from Pretoria as a major site, Johannesburg and Soweto are included.
Sondolo IT has provided electronic security directly rather than through third party distribution, which has improved speedy response to events and the safeguarding of assets. Overall security has been tightened up as never before. Equipment includes metal detectors, x-ray machines, normal communications, CCTV cameras of high resolution and access control systems.
2010 – Sondolo IT, part of the Bosasa Group of Companies, has established itself as a global roleplayer in the electronic security sector. This solutions-driven service provider offers its clients fully customised electronic security solutions in a variety of fields. These services include secure care and high risk facilities management, monitoring and armed response, biometric identification, software integration, information networking, systems and technical services, asset and property protection, surveillance and access control, car park security management, asset in transit protection and plant and farm management services.
