Myeni and Guptas will not appear before inquiry

Myeni and Guptas will not appear before inquiry

The Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises will prove toothless yet again this week, when former South African Airways (SAA) Chair, Dudu Myeni snubs Parliament for a third consecutive week.

Myeni has been requested to attend the committee - which is conducting an inquiry into the mismanagement of funds at state-owned enterprises - for three consecutive weeks now. On all three occasions she has made it clear that she will not be attending.

This week, Myeni has already decided that she will be too ill to attend the inquiry.

In addition - although this had been clear for a long time now - the Gupta brothers and their associates will not honour their invitations to the inquiry.

South Africans will now wonder if there has been any point to these inquiries? Clearly, Parliament is unable to hold its officials to account.

Both Myeni and the Gupta associates were scheduled to attend the inquiry on Tuesday.

"The Guptas have advised the committee that the brothers are currently out of the country and can therefore not accept the request to appear before the inquiry," said Portfolio Chair Zukiswa Rantho late on Monday.

"Regarding Ms Myeni, the committee has been informed that she is unable to attend due to ill health and incapacity," added Rantho.
