EOH employees suspended for sabotaging Microsoft deal


EOH has announced the suspension and resignation of employees involved in causing Microsoft to cancel contracts.

After an anonymous complaint prompted by Microsoft to cancel two of their contracts with EOH Holdings, the company has suspended some of its employees that were involved in sabotaging the deal.

In a letter to staff, EOH CEO Stephen van Coller said: 

“We have either suspended or received resignations from involved employees, resulting in none of the employees currently implicated remaining in the business.” 

He also admitted that talks with Microsoft regarding the decision to terminate its Channel Partner Agreement with EOH Mthombo, a subsidiary of EOH, has failed to yield positive results and that the matter is now under judicial consideration.

This comes shortly after news that two EOH founding members and directors will be stepping down.
