CAPE TOWN - Outa has labelled former Eskom CFO Anoj Singh a liar.



The lobby group said Singh should be stripped of his accounting licence and jailed.

It wants him to be held accountable for his alleged involvement in tender irregularities linked to Gupta-owned companies.



“We believe that the Hawks and the NPA should be doing the investigation regarding what he has done.

"One of the key things is that the Guptas paid, and today in the parliamentary hearing he specially said they never paid for anything. It’s a family member that paid for him, he can’t remember meeting these people.

"This man is a liar so we believe that something should be done about this maN so that’s on the charges that we laid. On Saica (The South African Institute of chartered Accountants), this man is a chartered accountant and as a chartered accountant this man is held to a higher level than normal accountants because there is a code of conduct that they need to adhere to.

"Sadly today in the hearing, this man looked a bumbling person," said Outa’s Chief Operations Officer, Ben Theron.
