Steyn, Ms A to ask the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development
Whether the investigative report into the appointment and work provided by a certain company (name furnished) has been completed; if not, why not; if so, (2) whether she will provide Mrs A Steyn with a copy of the report; if not, why not; if so, on what date?
1. The forensic investigation into appointment and performance of the Implementing Agent called Agridelight has been instituted as part of the Section 100 intervention into the affairs of the North West Provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. All Section 100 intervention forensic investigations in the North West are being supervised by the National Treasury. The National Treasury appointed firm for the investigation of Agridelight is still investigating in collaboration with the Directorate of Priority Crime Investigations (DPCI/Hawks) towards finalizing these investigations, which we are assured will be concluded soon. Agridelight has after a court order submitted a close out report which has been referred to National Treasury for analysis.
2. National Treasury, in consultation with the DCPCI is still busy with the report.
