EFF Promises To Pursue ‘Further Actions’

EFF has criticised the commission for using the offices of media company Tiso Blackstar, and in November last year wrote to Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo asking for reasons why the building had been chosen to house the commission’s sittings.

“In his response, the DCJ (deputy chief justice) referred the letter to Dr De Wee and assured the EFF that the letter will be responded to. The EFF has not received any response on the reasons for using a Tiso Blackstar building and has not received the breakdown of how much is being paid for the venue and other services,” Ndlozi said.

“The latest reports about Dr De Wee and our genuine concern about him not coming out in the open about the operations of the commission are reasons enough for him to go. The EFF demands that he must go, and will pursue further actions if he arrogantly remains as secretary of the commission.”

The EFF protested outside the venue last year when State Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan testified.

De Wee was not immediately available to comment when contacted on Thursday evening. News24 attempted to reach him again on Friday morning.
