JOHANNESBURG - German technology company SAP will launch a probe after it was implicated in the #GuptaLeaks scandal.
"SAP has initiated an independent investigation spearheaded by a multinational law firm and overseen by executive board member Adaire Fox-Martin to vigorously review contracts awarded by SAP South Africa," a statement from the company said.

The current South African management team was placed on administrative leave pending the findings of the review.
It is alleged the Gupta-controlled company apparently helped SAP secure the deal in return for a kickback of around R100-million.
SAP is reviewing the contracts and the company’s president is travelling to South Africa to address the concerns.
