Zondo – Hogan – Zuma – State capture

 

“In many of these SOEs, the memorandums of association prescribed that the minister appoint the CEO. If there is no trust or no endorsement of that CEO by the board, it’s a very difficult relationship.   “It is very important that the minister does not interfere with the work of the CEO. Corporate governance is very important in this phase … The board owes the company a fiduciary responsibility,” she said.

“The minister would authorise the board to do a search along commonly agreed parameters, so the minister would never appoint a CEO out of the blue and allow the board to go ahead. You can’t have a CEO who the board doesn’t even know … When one becomes a minister, you are allocated an executive authority. I was given the executive authority to appoint members to the board.”

 

Asked by evidence leader advocate Phillip Mokoena about whether she thought the president could instruct the minister on board appointments or CEO appointments at SOEs, Hogan replied: “No.”

Jacob Zuma to be asked about appointees to state-owned entities

Zuma is expected to be quizzed on whether he overstepped his mandate by instructing that appointments be made to the executives of various state-owned entities when he returns to the state capture inquiry for the third time on Wednesday.

The commission is expected to turn its line of questioning to evidence provided by former public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan, who testified last year that Zuma unlawfully instructed her to appoint certain people into key executive positions at Eskom and Transnet.

Although he did not have the mandate to do so, Zuma is also said to have instructed her to withdraw information on certain issues in her reports to parliament.

In one example, Zuma is said to have insisted on the appointment of state capture-implicated Siyabonga Gama as Transnet’s group executive. At the time, Gama was already facing charges over tender irregularities.

According to Hogan, Zuma also instructed that a process to replace then Eskom boss Jacob Maroga be stopped  in 2012.

 

Zuma’s second day before the commission ended when evidence leader Paul Pretorius began quizzing him on the normal processes of appointing executives at state-owned entities.

The former president’s legal representative, Muzi Sikhakhane, asked for an early adjournment. Pretorius agreed, saying the day had been “strenuous”.
