Parliament summons Duduzane, Guptas and Myeni

The committee probing state capture resolved to summons the implicated individuals  in mid-March.

Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Public Enterprises has issued summonses for former SAA board chairperson Dudu Myeni, former president Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane and the three Gupta brothers to appear before its inquiry.

They have been implicated in allegations of state capture - specifically for dealings with the state-owned power utility Eskom.

The committee has been probing the alleged mismanagement of state funds at state-owned entities, specifically at the power utility.

"The committee summonsed the above persons to address allegations made against them by various witnesses who had testified before the inquiry," the committee said in a statement.

But there has been some trouble in issuing the summonses, given that the Guptas and Zuma are not in the country.

The Sheriff attempted to serve the summonses to the individuals at their last known addresses and had to attach the summons to Myeni's gate after the security guard allegedly refused to accept it.

"With regard to the Guptas, the Sheriff could not serve the summonses at their residence," the committee said.

It now plans to ask the Hawks to assist in tracking them down so that the summonses can be served.

Due to the complications, the committee has resolved to cancel Wendesday's sitting.
