JOHANNESBURG – The Hawks have warned those labelled information peddlers to stop spreading lies to the media.
They moved this weekend to clarify that there’s no investigation into Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan.
It claims he was never a suspect in its probe into the so-called Sars rogue unit and has slammed reports of his imminent arrest.
Hawks spokesman Hangwani Mulaudzi said they were seeking clarity on some aspects of the unit from Gordhan.
“At that point that is where things got out of control, where upon people and certain sectors of the media where purporting to the fact that we are now investigating the minister,” said Mulaudzi.
“It sent shock waves all over the country. We tried our best to assure the public that there’s no such a thing.”
