The Association of B-BBEE Professionals (“the ABP”) has noted that Empowerdex which is one of its Members has been implicated by Mr. Angelo Agrizzi in the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into allegations of the State Capture, (“the Zondo Commission”) and we note the developments with concern.
While the ABP takes full cognisance of the fact that Mr. Angelo Agrizzi has not been cross examined in the aforementioned Commission, and further notes the statement issued by Empowerdex in their website wherein Empowerdex denied knowledge of the aforesaid allegations as contained in Mr Agizzi’s testimony, the ABP takes these allegations very seriously.
As this matter is still being heard in the Zondo Commission and with the intention of not interrupting the possible witnesses in the Zondo Commission, the ABP will in due course engage Empowerdex in terms of its disciplinary processes.
It is one of the ABP’s main priorities to ensure that its members uphold ethical values as contained in the ABP’s Code of Conduct.
The Association of B-BBEE Professionals (ABP) is established to lead the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) verification industry as it takes up a vital role in the transformation of the South African economy.
