PIC CEO Daniel Matjila talks alleged plot to remove him

"My removal would make state capture of the PIC easier," says Matjila in the interview.

The Public Investment Corporation (PIC) has deliberated on claims of alleged impropriety by its CEO Daniel Matjila and has found the allegations to be baseless.

There has been a swirl of rumour regarding alleged impropriety around Matjila.

Matjila has denied the charges, saying they were designed to hound him out of the management of the pensions of state employees.

The PIC manages nearly R2-trillion worth of public servants’ pensions and other public funds and invests in, and earns returns from, listed and unlisted entities.
