Among the revelations are kickback agreements totalling over R5-billion, with a Chinese train manufacturer.

Hawks Spokesperson, Hangwani Mulaudzi stated, "the acting national head will have to decide if these leaks will need us to investigate them. There’s a section in the Saps act that allows the National Head to institute an enquiry, I'm not sure if that decision has been taken yet."
