Dan Matjila must be suspended immediately - UDM

The United Democratic Movement has called for the immediate suspension and investigation of Public Investment Corporation (PIC) CEO Dan Matjila.

The demand comes after news that Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene is looking afresh at corruption allegations made last year against Matjila and has asked the board to provide him with the details pertaining to the matter.

UDM leader Bantu Holomisa says cannot continue in his position while an investigation is being conducted.

If the minister is keen to reconsider these allegations, one would have expected that a person who is under investigation be suspended immediately.

You cannot even trust that board. You need somebody that is going to come from outside or a committee to do a thorough investigation so that the minister can take a decision from an informed position.
