Eskom inquiry set to subpoena Guptas and Duduzane Zuma
The Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises may have to subpoena the Guptas and Duduzane Zuma following confirmation that neither of them will be testifying in the Eskom inquiry this week.
Lawyers representing the Guptas have apparently told the chairperson of The Public Enterprises Committee, Zukiswa Rantho, that the brothers will not appear at the Eskom Inquiry as they are currently not in the country.
They are among the last of the witnesses the Public Enterprises' committee wants to hear from before it wraps up its probe into the parastatal.
Democratic Alliance (DA) shadow minister for Public Enterprises Natasha Mazzone says this is no surprise.
It is rather unfortunate that given the state of affairs and the way this committee has been running, that we are now going to have to resort to issuing a subpoena in terms of 17(1) of the Powers, Privileges and Immunities of Parliament Act.Natasha Mazzone, DA shadow minister of public enterprises
I haven't seen the letters yet, but they certainly seem to be in the same Whatsapp group because it is rather disturbing that letters arrive together. Certainly very suspicious behavior, but certainly, nothing that has been unexpected and nothing the committee isn't ready to face head-on.Natasha Mazzone, DA shadow minister of public enterprises
