Director-general of the Department of Public Enterprises Richard Seleke is in the sights of the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa), which is going to lay charges of corruption against him. Outa portfolio director for social services Dominique Msibi said on Tuesday that affidavits were being prepared in order to lay the charges against Seleke, who had been implicated in Gupta family-associated corruption. Outa director Ted Blom told members of Parliament’s public enterprises committee on Tuesday that Seleke had acted as the "postman" for the Guptas and state-owned enterprises, receiving and passing on confidential and classified information to members of the Gupta family and their associates.
