Hawks gun for Jonas

Although it is a sub­sidiary of SAA, Saat has its own board.

The Hawks’ Xaba and his Cats team made head­lines last year when they sent 27 ques­tions to Gord­han a few days be­fore he was due to de­liver his 2016 bud­get speech. The fraud charges against Gord­han were with­drawn by Abrahams late last year be­fore he could even ap­pear in court.

The same unit is also in­ves­ti­gat­ing Eco­nomic Free­dom Fight­ers leader Julius Malema for in­cit­ing vi­o­lence; In­de­pen­dent Po­lice In­ves­tiga­tive Direc­torate head Robert McBride, for­mer Hawks boss Anwa Dra­mat and his Gaut­eng coun­ter­part, Shadrack Sibiya, in con­nec­tion with the il­le­gal ren­di­tion of five Zim­bab­weans; and foren­sic in­ves­ti­ga­tor Paul O’Sul­li­van on a string of charges.

Xaba and his unit were also im­pli­cated in the al­leged kid­nap­ping of Sars ex­ec­u­tive Vlok Syming­ton, who re­vealed le­gal ad­vice ex­on­er­at­ing Gord­han of any wrong­do­ing in the grant­ing of early re­tire­ment to Pil­lay, his for­mer deputy.
