Former Steinhoff CEO Markus Jooste OKs a 'circumscribed' grilling in Parliament
It’s a bit like asking a prisoner who just escaped from jail to come back and point out the flaws in the prison’s infrastructure.Warren Thompson, Business Day
Former Steinhoff Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Markus Jooste will give evidence – under oath - in Parliament next Wednesday (5 September) about the collapse of the once-loved furniture behemoth.
Jooste – now a subject of a Hawks investigation - quit after accounting irregularities came to light, triggering a total collapse in the Steinhoff share price.
He has yet to break his silence on what went wrong at Steinhoff.
Former Steinhoff Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Ben La Grange will be at Parliament this Wednesday (29 Augustus).

I’m not too optimistic we’re going to learn anything new from Mr Jooste.Warren Thompson, Business Day
He’s going to have a team of lawyers with him… it’s going to be very guarded…Warren Thompson, Business Day
