THE FACTS

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

ON JULY 2, we pub­lished an ar­ti­cle which looked at can­di­dates for the pub­lic pro­tec­tor po­si­tion and in the case of nom­i­nee Riaz Salo­jee, who we high­lighted, pub­lished in­for­ma­tion un­re­lated to him, with a pho­to­graph of him. Salo­jee is nei­ther the CEO of Denel nor was he in any way linked to the Gupta fam­ily. He is, in fact, a for­mer Western Cape provin­cial head of Lawyers for Hu­man Rights and a re­gional and provin­cial direc­tor of the In­de­pen­dent Com­plaints Direc­torate. Fol­low­ing his stud­ies at Wits, he worked for I Ayob & Part­ners and Priscilla Jana & As­so­ciates, and rep­re­sented ac­tivists, mem­bers of po­lit­i­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions and or­di­nary peo­ple, mostly from dis­ad­van­taged com­mu­ni­ties and en­gaged in ex­tra­parlia­men­tary pol­i­tics. He is now a prac­tis­ing at­tor­ney.
