Saru CEO Jurie Roux has remained in his position despite a 2013 KPMG forensic report implicating him in dodgy financial dealings.
702's John Robbie on Monday spoke to Netwerk24 editor-in-chief Adriaan Basson about the issue.
Listen to the conversation below:
...After he left [Stellenbosch] there were some whistleblowers who came forward with information of how the university's financial systems were subverted to channel money the way of the rugby club that was meant for academic programmes.— Adriaan Basson, Netwerk24 editor-in-chief
We went to court to get these reports through the Public Access to Information Act because we believe universities are institutions partly funded by public money. We won in the high court and the Supreme Court of Appeal despite Jurie Roux's attempts to not get these reports in the public.— Adriaan Basson, Netwerk24 editor-in-chief
It's unclear what informed the decision to extend Jurie Roux's contract in 2014 at Saru for five years despite the fact that at the time, the major damning findings of what he did at Stellenbosch was already in the public domain.— Adriaan Basson, Netwerk24 editor-in-chief
The case is also with the Hawks, there's a criminal investigation pending and I believe there's some movement on this.— Adriaan Basson, Netwerk24 editor-in-chief
