We need to make sure Survé does not pull a Gupta move

So-called "Dr" Iqbal Survé has received much notoriety in the media in South Africa, including News24.

Numerous reports and investigations have established that he has been given huge amounts of money (millions) and those treated as loans have not seen a single cent repaid.

Just recently and what is an on-going matter, the Guptas fleeced South Africa of millions and when the water became too hot for them, simply fled the country.

Many have raised the question as to whether Dr Survé is going to do the same. After all, what is there to stop him from doing so?

My question is: What are the authorities doing as far as pe-emptive action is concerned, to prevent him from doing so?

No doubt he has a South African passport and very likely a few more for other countries.

Someone needs to act fast in order to prevent him from doing a "Gupta". Even to the extent of putting all airports on alert.
