Political Desk: 'McKinsey & Trillian evidence must be followed with arrests'

The Asset Forfeiture Unit confirmed on Monday it has been granted three preservation orders to seize assets worth an estimated R1.6 billion.

The orders have been granted against consulting firm McKinsey and Gupta-linked Trillian related to contracts with Eskom and the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa).

Associate Editor at Tiso Blackstar, Ranjeni Munusamy shares her perspective on this and other political news.

We can see that there are people that are actually hard at work at the NPA, investigating the state capture matters.

I think the documents around the action against Mckinsey and Trillian show that there is clear evidence of corruption, so what this says is if there is this evidence of collusion and corruption, this surely must be followed on with arrest warrants.
