Transnet expects its former execs to face first state capture prosecution

Transnet has told Parliament that it expects that the country’s first state capture prosecution case involving fraud and corruption will involve the parastatal itself.

The parastatal’s board today briefed Parliament’s Select Committee on Public Enterprises and Communications.

Eyewitness News reporter Gaye Davis says the case will involve some of the parastatal's former executives.

What we heard today from one of the board members - Advocate Oupa Motaung, was that Transnet in fact had a whole team running forensic investigations from the time the board took over in May last year and they have seconded their team to the NPA to assist with evidence because they are as keen as you and me to see the wrongdoers brought to book.

Motaung told us that they were at an advanced stage... they are also pursuing a number of civil claims and a number of criminal cases they are involved in.
