Telkom sues Ramaphosa to stop investigation into shady deals

Telkom has launched a multi-part application in the Pretoria High Court asking for President Cyril Ramaphosa’s order that the SIU investigate suspicious deals at the company be declared unconstitutional and invalid.

The court papers seek an interdict blocking the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) from proceeding with its investigation, and an order setting aside Ramaphosa’s proclamation, Business Times reported.
Another state owned asset, employing thousands of people, pulled through the ANC's collective backside. So the running score is:

SARS: Check
Eskom: Check
SAA: Check
Denel: Check
Telkom: Check
Transnet: Check
PRASA: Check
84% of all municipalities: Check

Who is next?

When you have nothing to hide but still feels it's necessary to go to these lengths to stonewall the process, reminds me a little of Zuma's tactics.
Telkom first needs to legally change its name to remove the SOC, but clearly someone at Telkom (past and/or present) is very worried about what the SIU will uncover, otherwise they would've just waited for the SIU to tell Ramaphosa that they don't have jurisdiction (which I suspect they arguably do).

Did this all happen on Sipho's watch? Never...
Speaking of Sipho, it's time for his fake number plate crimes to be punished.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. If there was nothing to worry about, Telkom would be pushing for this to go through the courts faster.
