Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba has told Cosatu’s central executive committee meeting that he cannot guarantee that the government will not attempt to make use of the Public Investment Corporation’s (PIC’s) funds to capitalise state-owned companies and other projects.

This comes as the government scrambles to raise money for struggling state-owned companies‚ notably airline SAA‚ which has lenders and creditors breathing down its neck.
