Dear Mr Nqakula
REQUEST FOR URGENT MEETING: JOINT STANDING COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE
The above matter refers.
In my capacity as a member of the Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence, I request that you convene an urgent meeting of the Committee to consider the widely reported and circulated ‘Intelligence Report’ [the Report] that purportedly has been the central reason for the change of leadership in the National Treasury.
In order for the Committee to be able to consider this matter and deliberate, I further request that you direct the Minister of State Security, Mr David Mahlobo, and his Director General, to attend the meeting and brief us on the following, amongst others:
1. Whether the Report is a product of our local intelligence agencies?
2. Whether the Report is a product of foreign intelligence agencies?
3. Whether the Minister is satisfied with the origin and substance of the Report and, if so, to give the Committee further details?
You will certainly appreciate the negative impact the Report has had on our economy and the Country’s subsequent downgrading to junk status.
I hope you find this request in order and urgent.
Mr Bantu Holomisa, MP
President of the United Democratic Movement
