Former PIC boss had corruption case opened against him, inquiry hears

Forensic investigator Frans Lekubo testified about his discoveries while probing the source of malicious reports against Matjila.

The commission of inquiry into the PIC has been told that former CEO Dan Matjila had a corruption case opened against him by a former employee.

Forensic investigator Frans Lekubo was hired to investigate the source of malicious reports against Matjila and the leaking of confidential information.

That's when he discovered that the PIC’s head of IT security, Simphiwe Mayisela, had opened a corruption case against Matjila without his knowledge.

The case was linked to allegations that Matjila used money from the PIC for a loan for his girlfriend, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.

It was also discovered that Mayisela had unlawfully intercepted Matjila’s emails in addition to opening a case.

Lekubo told the inquiry that a whistleblower known only as James Nogu had also been sending emails to the PIC board about Matjila.

The identity of Nogu was never verified and it remains unclear if he and Mayisela are the same person.

It all started when the PIC board started getting these anonymous emails about Matjila's alleged corrupt dealings and that he was allegedly funding his girlfriend using money from the PIC.

There are a lot of skeletons coming out of the closet very slowly.
