The FSCA raided the company as part of an investigation into allegations of prohibited trading practices.

Sekunjalo Investments Holdings owner Iqbal Survé argued that the operation was orchestrated by Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

Speaking to Refilwe Moloto, FSCA divisional executive of investigations and enforcement Brandon Topham says the order for the search was granted by the Western Cape High Court.
