CAPE TOWN – Sekunjalo chairperson Dr Iqbal Survé on Monday said he was delighted and welcomed the DA’s statement calling on him to appear before the Lex Mpati Commission of Inquiry into allegations of impropriety related to the Public Investment Corporation (PIC).
The DA said on Monday that it had written to the commission to request that it confirm whether Survé would appear before it to explain the serious allegations against him that had emerged over the past two weeks.
The Sekunjalo Group, Survé and AYO Technology Solutions have been on record publicly for the last few weeks indicating that they welcomed the commission, supported it fully and requested the media to give the commission time to do its work unhindered and uninfluenced.
"Despite this, the Tiso Blackstar media group, in particular, the Sunday Times and Business Day, eNCA and other detractors of Independent Media and Survé, have desperately tried to influence the commission in order to defame Dr Survé, Sekunjalo and investee companies such as AYO," said Survé in the statement.
The DA said it was highly probable that when Survé is called to appear before the commission he would attempt to invoke Section 10 of the Regulations to enable him to give evidence in camera and in secret.
