HAWKS HARASSMENT MUST STOP IN THE INTERESTS OF JUSTICE
I was very surprised to read the misleading headlines and content of the articles in some of the Independent Newspapers titles (see here).
Once again the Hawks, and those who instruct them, have no regard for the economic and social welfare of millions.
Over the past week, a Team SA delegation consisting of Government, Business and three Labour federations have been on an intense investor roadshow to address concerns of our bond investors and defend our fiscal strength. This is so that we can continue to borrow money we don't have to spend on infrastructure and other projects. These investors and the ratings agencies are observing every development in South Africa with a keen eye. I am acting, with other loyal South Africans, in the best interests of all South Africans so that they may have a better and more prosperous future.
Let me address the "revelation" in the weekend media.
My attorneys have confirmed to me that that no other letter has been received by their office until close of business on Friday 11 March; nor by email. I can also confirm that I am unaware of any "new" letter.
