Committee sent Anoj Singh packing

The Portfolio Committee of Public Enterprises has on Tuesday deferred testimony by suspended Eskom Chief Financial Officer Anoj Singh for bringing documents late.

Singh was due to testify before Eskom’s Parliamentary inquiry into the mismanagement of state funds at state-owned enterprises.

Singh was told to go home after he sent a 400-page document to the Committee late yesterday evening, the day before he appears before the inquiry.

The Committee said Singh was given seven months to prepare for his appearance.

 Instead, he submitted the documents late on Monday night, denying the inquiry enough time to prepare.

Chairperson for the inquiry Zukiswa Rantho said Singh behaviour undermines the work of the Committee.

“The Committee received documents of 400 pages last night at 11 pm. We have prepared nothing due to the delay. We will not be able to do justice to the inquiry because the document came late. The Committee is disappointed because we informed you in July to give you enough time to prepare. You have undermined the work of the Committee,” said Rantho.

The Committee told Singh that it wants to engage him on the allegations leveled against him and will call him to appear before the inquiry in 2018.

The Committee condemns Singh’s behaviour as an unacceptable bent on delaying and frustrating the work of the  Committee.
