Sipho Pitanya hits back at BBC for backing Zuma

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.

My view is you do not get up and go out to push. That should not happen unless you have something to hide.

Responding to the comments that he has no right to ask the President to resign, Pityana said he cannot be led by a President he does not trust.

As a matter of fact it is perfectly legitimate for any South African to call on the President to step down.
