Pretoria – Recently, the Directorate For Priority Crime Investigation (HAWKS) has noticed several inaccurate and misleading articles pertaining to the investigation of South African Airways (SAA) chairperson Dudu Myeni.

The National Head of the DPCI Lieutenant General Mthandazo Ntlemeza would like to make the public aware that these articles are grossly inaccurate. It is against this background that the Lieutenant General Ntlemeza is compelled to provide the public with the correct information pertaining to the Hawks investigation.

The DPCI has been sanctioned to investigate illegal activities at SAA which amongst others include is to uncover the truth on the alleged theft, fraud and corruption involving contracts, agreements, tenders, procurement and irregular closure of SAA routes in Senegal, India and Beijing.

The investigation is also set to scrutinize allegations of sabotage, irregular use of private investigators to spy and solicit confidential information with a view to undermine operations and safety of passengers.

“To set the record straight the Hawks are not investigating the Chairperson, moreover since we began with the investigations last year she has been very instrumental in providing us with information regarding this important probe. It is seemingly evident that there are certain media who are reporting untruths and we want to distance ourselves from such gross reporting.

“For the record, Miss Dudu Myeni is not being investigated by the Hawks. We remain committed to carrying out our mandate of uncovering the truth at SAA and the public will be kept abreast of developments as and when it is necessary”, said Lieutenant General Ntlemeza.
