BUSA to provide resources to NPA following the State Capture report

This was confirmed by Cas Coovadia- the CEO of Busa, following the first report submission by Inquiry Chair and Acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, last week to the President Cyril Matamela Ramaphosa.

“We will co-ordinate initiatives by our members into a serious and concerted mechanism to provide necessary resources to the NPA to urgently prepare cases to prosecute those identified in the report.

Such resources could include private prosecutors and other relevant assistance,” said Coovadia.

“We will engage the NPA about this.”

Busa board held an urgent meeting this week to discuss the report and called on the criminal justice system to ensure speedy investigations and prosecutions.

“We will investigate what kind of resources be it legal or financial or any other form of help that would be needed to speed up the investigations,” he said.

He also said they would create job opportunities to those whistle-blowers who lost their jobs as a result.

Coovadia, said the board, also intends to engage with businesses mentioned in the report “to get a full briefing from those businesses about the allegations and to understand what actions those businesses intend taking.

“The board was clear that business must use the report for very serious introspection and develop a position that reflects serious consideration of the involvement of businesses in the state capture saga.”

The first of Zondo’s three-phase findings focused on SAA and related companies, the Gupta-owned The New Age newspaper, the SA Revenue Service and public procurement.
