PIC to consider launching an investigation into smear campaign

I wrote to the Deputy-Minister of Finance, Sfiso Buthelezi, on 01 October 2017 requesting him to launch an investigation to determine who was behind the smear campaign that did so much damage to the reputation of the Public Investment Corporation.
A month ago, a person using what appears to be a pseudonym, “James Nogu”, and using what appears to be a fake e-mail address, corruptionstop@webmail.co.za, is believed to have circulated an e-mail claiming to have “uncovered a corrupt relationship between Dr Dan Majila and his girlfriend Miss Pretty Louw”.
However, since then the allegations that were aimed at the Chief Executive Officer of the Public Investment Corporation, Dr Dan Majila, have been found to be baseless and he has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
The deputy minister responded to my request, in a letter dated 02 October 2017, as follows:
“Your proposal about the PIC is appreciated and will be considered as we continue to ensure that the PIC continues with the execution of its mandate.”
We can only hope that the board does the right thing and agrees to launch an investigation and to protect the integrity of the Public Investment Corporation.
