Parliament - The parliamentary inquiry probing the early naturalisation of the Gupta family is mulling summoning former Sahara Computers CEO Ashu Chawla to testify before it.
This after the home affairs portfolio committee could not get hold of Chawla to testify before the second phase of the inquiry which started on Tuesday.
Committee chairperson Hlomane Chauke told the inquiry that Chawla, who is a naturalised South African, has been a central person in the facilitation of visas and permits with Home Affairs Department officials.
"We have tried to track him down and we can't get him. Now that he is a South African, we have to find him by the end of this inquiry," Chauke said.
"That person becomes very important for Parliament to understand his activities and involvement with officials of the department," he said.
