SIU is slow - communications committee

Johannesburg - The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) is slow in its investigations, the portfolio committee on telecommunications and postal services said on Friday.

"The portfolio committee... is concerned about the slow pace of the investigations by the SIU into some entities of the department," chairperson Mmamoloka Kubayi said in a statement.

The committee received a report from SIU head Vasantrai Soni on progress in outstanding investigations into entities within the department, as proclaimed by the president.

Kubayi urged the SIU to urgently find speedy resolutions.

SIU spokesperson Boy Ndala said he could not comment on the matter as he had not seen the committee's comments.
