Benguela Global Fund Managers has laid criminal charges against former Steinhoff CEO Markus Jooste at the Sandton police station.

The fund manager has written to interim CEO Christo Wiese, demanding that he and rest of the board step down right away.

Benguela doesn’t believe Wiese was complicit in what seems like criminal acts.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Benguela Global Fund Managers Chief Investment Officer Zwelakhe Mnguni.
