Zungula, Mr V to ask the President of the Republic
Whether he, based on Mr Edwin Sodi’s recent testimony at the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State, implicating certain Ministers and Deputy Ministers (names and details furnished) as beneficiaries of Mr Sodi’s company (name furnished), intends taking any action against the executive members in accordance with the Executive Members’ Ethics Act, Act 82 of 1998 and the Executive Ethics Code; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (2) whether he intends to relieve the implicated executive office bearers of their responsibilities as Minister and Deputy Ministers; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?
I am aware of the testimony given by Mr Sodi to the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State. No finding has been made by the Commission in this regard. I will apply my mind to any actions that need to be taken once findings and recommendations in this regard are made.
