AngloGold Ashanti Chairman, Sipho Pityana, says he finds it suspicious that the Black Business Council has urged President Jacob Zuma not to sign into legislation the Financial Intelligence Centre Act.
Pityana says the Act is an important means of ensuring there are no illicit financial transactions by relatives and family of politically exposed people.
Why does Black Business Leadership South Africa, of all issues that they think should be raised, urged the president to please not sign into law a piece of legislation that enables us to conform with what happens in international system.— Sipho Pityana, AngloGold Ashanti Chairman and ANC veteran

As a matter of fact it is perfectly legitimate for any South African to call on the President to step down.— Sipho Pityana, AngloGold Ashanti Chairman and ANC veteran
