Transnet board, executives to be summonsed after no-show in Parliament

The board and executives of South Africa’s State-owned freight and logistics company, Transnet, will be summonsed to appear before Parliament’s standing committee on public accounts (Scopa) after a no-show on Wednesday. Board chairperson Linda Mabaso and her team were expected to respond to MPs on questionable contracts worth billions of rand, but she indicated to Scopa chairperson Themba Godi on Monday she would prefer the meeting take place in January.
