Johannesburg – Businesses should hold those implicated in allegations of state capture to account and no longer be silent on challenges facing society, said Nedbank chief executive Mike Brown.

He was speaking on the role of banks and business in securing the future of the country at the Nedgroup Investments Summit in Sandton, Johannesburg on Tuesday. Brown, who is also part of the CEO Initiative, spoke out against state capture and called for an investigation to find out the truth.

“That is the only way we will find out what is happening in the state capture environment,” he said. Brown indicated he is not confident that inquiries into state-owned enterprises (SOEs) will reveal much.
