Anoj Singh should be charged criminally for corruption - FM Deputy Editor

The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) has taken action against former Eskom CFO Anoj Singh.

They have charged Singh with misconduct, in which he faces a fine of up to R250 000 per charge, as well as having his SAICA membership suspended.

Deputy Editor at Financial Mail, Sikonathi Mantshantsha says SAICA has been very lenient on Singh, and says he should be getting criminally charged for corruption dating back to when he was still with Transnet.

This SAICA investigation is one of those things they are pretending to be doing something when they've been doing absolutely nothing. They are charging him for being dishonorable, and not with theft.

SAICA claims in a statement that Singh had failed to disclose to Eskom's board the true reason for Gupta-owned Tegeta's request for almost R600 million from the utility.
