CAPE TOWN – The Black Business Chamber (BBC) yesterday called on all South African businesses to do a comprehensive corporate clean-up in light of the report by the PIC Commission of Inquiry and what it termed the “disappointingly incorrect statement” made by Sipho Pityana, president of Business Unity South Africa (Busa) on Monday.

In the said statement Pityana said action needed to be taken against the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) office-bearers (past and present) identified in the report, as well as the people and companies who benefited.

The BBC said it supported the call for further investigation on pertinent matters from the commission’s report.

Secretary-general Khaya Cishe encouraged the authorities to root out the corrupt and see that they are dealt with in accordance with the law.

“However, we cannot condone calling for this type of action where it is not warranted,” Cishe said. “By way of example, we are not sure whether Pityana has actually read the report, in asking for action to be taken against Dr Survé, given the report exonerated him.
