Former Necsa board calls for investigation into AGSA report

Former Necsa board calls for investigation into AGSA report

first_imgSource: Necsa Generation Radebe accused the previous autonomous Board of so-called “insubordination” and “defiance”, and summarily removed the entire Board without following standard procedures. Tshelane, Kemm and Audit and Compliance board member, Pamela Bosman, launched an urgent application in the Pretoria High Court to have their removal set aside. The new Board is due to present Necsa financial statements in Parliament on 5 March. He and Necsa’s suspended Chair, Dr Kelvin Kemm, believe that the negative report is part of a strategy orchestrated to discredit members of the Board standing in the way of a corrupt deal that would see Energy Minister Jeff Radebe sell the lucrative Necsa owned nuclear medicine subsidiary, NTP Radioisotopes, to an American company. Tshelane, Kemm and Bosman say that,not only was the Minister’s action procedurally irregular and unfair, it was asmokescreen to hide the real agenda, which was to remove people opposing acorrupt deal. The AGSA report delivered an adverse outcome on Necsa and casts doubt on its ability to continue as a going concern.

The fact that the work was not taken into account by the AGSA is suspicious,” said Necsa’s suspended CEO, Phumzile Tshelane. Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA UNDP China, CCIEE launch report to facilitate low-carbon development The Auditor General South Africa (AGSA) report for 2017/18 released last week is misleading and should be investigated by the media, the Nuclear Energy Corporation SA (Necsa) former board members declared in a statement.center_img Tshelane said: “Since Radebe’s new Board could not reasonably address AGSA’s audit queries, this led to the acceptance of a Report that creates the false impression that the AG’s queries were not addressed satisfactorily.  Our removal facilitated a misleading audit.” In the previous year, Necsa was theonly state owned enterprise to make a profit and to pay tax. Necsa was awardeda trophy by the AGSA for delivering a clean audit. When Radebe took office, hisdubious agenda to sell NTP, and the campaign to discredit those standingup to him, became apparent.

A document with full details has been in President Ramaphosa’s hands for several months. Kemm and Tshelane believe that they may be manipulated to discredit the previous Board, and subvert disciplinary proceedings against Tshelane, and the court case. Three days before the hearing set for 17 January, the Minister’s legal team submitted over 800 pages of additional documents. The effect was that it had to be removed from the “urgent” role. The case was then postponed to February 12 and then to 10 June for the court to “find” an available judge. last_img read more
