The United Democratic Movement welcomes the president’s announcement of the appointment of Justice Lex Mpati as the head of the commission of inquiry into the allegations of corruption at the Public Investment Corporation (PIC).
The inquiry should clean-up the mess at the PIC and get to the bottom of the rot we have seen exposed in the media for quite some time. The pension funds of past and present government employees should be protected from the ruthless sharks that are eating away at their financial futures.
We reiterate our call that PIC chief executive officer, Dr Dan Matjila, who played a pivotal role in, for example the Mozambican oil deal, the VBS Mutual Bank scandal, the Ayo Technologies and Sagarmatha Technologies mess, should be suspended with immediate effect, which is in line with international norms and standards.
