PRETORIA - The PIC inquiry's heard how Ayo Technology executives Siphiwe Nodwele and Kevin Hardy were instructed to move over R400-million into the account for 3 Laws Capital, owned by media mogul Iqbal Survé.

Hardy became emotional when he testified about an alleged bribe Surve offered him.

"All our expenses would be covered including school fees, chauffeur at our beck and call, etc,” Hardy said.

“I respectfully declined the offer which was an outright bribe and said that I would not be able to convince my wife to move to Cape Town and that she wanted me to have nothing to do with him."

The Commission wants to question the JSE about its last-minute decision not to list Sagarmatha, a company owned by Surve.
