Minister Sisulu was never a Director or shareholder of Dyambu Holdings, contrary to Mr Agrizzi’s testimony in the State Capture Commission
The Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation noted with concern false statements made by the former Chief Operations Officer of Bosasa in his testimony before the State Capture Commission on Wednesday, 16 January 2019.
Mr Agrizzi stated that Minister Lindiwe Sisulu was a Director or shareholder of the company that gave birth to Bosasa, namely Dyambu Holdings. This is incorrect and false.
The Ministry would like to refer Mr Agrizzi to the company registration documents of Dyambu Holdings and the BCCSA ruling of July 12, 2000 when the BCCSA corrected MNET and ruled that Carte Blanche broadcast an apology on the same matter, and the Parliamentary Hansard of February 1997, where Mr Tony Leon apologised for falsely accusing her of being a Director of Dyambu Holdings.
The Ministry calls on Mr Agrizzi to correct his statement in public and before the commission.
