    JOHANNESBURG - The South African government is not considering any proposal from Saudi Arabia on taking a stake in struggling state arms company Denel, Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan said, after the Gulf country offered to partner with Denel last year.

    PRETORIA - There's nothing amiss at the Public Investment Corporation, according to two employees who testified on the first day of the commission of inquiry into the corporation.

    Poor investment decisions have seen government pensions losing billions, while allegations of corruption are dogging the entity.

    The inquiry is looking into alleged impropriety, poor governance and kickbacks.

    It's also investigating why the corporation invested billions into certain companies, placing the government pension funds at risk.

    WATCH: Inquiry into PIC begins

    Major concerns were raised when the PIC lost billions after putting money into the failed VBS Mutual Bank, as well as into Steinhoff and questions are being asked about why the corporation decided to invest into two companies owned by media mogul Iqbal Survè.

    One of the companies, AYO Technology, has seen its share price dropping by almost 90-percent in the last two years.

    The PIC had bought 29-percent of AYO at over R45 a share. Now one share is worth just under R3.

    Despite this, two current employees are saying they have no knowledge of any wrongdoing.

    The commission's calling on anyone who has evidence and who's willing to testify to come forward.

    Tuesday will see more executives on the stand.

    File: Last year, MTN Uganda said government security personnel had raided its data centre and disconnected four of its servers.

    KAMPALA - Uganda has deported a French and a Rwandan executive from telecoms group MTN, accusing them of planning to compromise national security, police said on Tuesday.

    MTN Uganda, a unit of the South African telecoms firm, said its Chief Marketing Officer Olivier Prentout was detained at Entebbe airport on Saturday after returning from a business trip and then sent back to France.

    The company said its Head of Sales and Distribution, Annie Bilenge Tabura, was arrested by security personnel as she arrived at its headquarters in Kampala on Monday morning, then deported to Rwanda.

    It did not comment directly on the police accusation but said the company and all its employees were committed to respecting and operating within Ugandan laws. There was no immediate statement from either executive.

    Police said on Twitter that the pair were deported "over their engagements in acts which compromise national security." It did not go into further details on the charges.

    Last year, MTN Uganda said government security personnel had raided its data centre and disconnected four of its servers.

    MTN Uganda has more than 10 million subscribers and competes chiefly with India’s Bharti Airtel.

    MTN’s 20-year license expired in October. The firm applied for a 10-year extension and the Uganda Communications Commission gave it an interim renewal lasting 60-days pending resolution of a number of unspecified issues before a final license is issued.

    Ugandan authorities have said MTN has agreed to list its shares on Uganda’s local bourse as a condition of renewing its license, though the firm itself is yet to confirm this.
