“We will engage the NPA about this.”
This comes after NPA boss Shamila Batohi said late last year that the extent and nature of state capture corruption required additional and specialised skills and capacities.
The first of Zondo’s three-phase findings focused on SAA and related companies, the Gupta-owned The New Age newspaper, the SA Revenue Service and public procurement.
The Busa board, said Coovadia, also intends to engage with businesses mentioned in the report “to get a full briefing from those businesses about the allegations and to understand what actions those businesses intend taking.
“The board was clear that business must use the report for very serious introspection and develop a position that reflects serious consideration of the involvement of businesses in the state capture saga.”
