President Zuma wishes Adv Soni and family well
President Jacob Zuma has received, with regret, the resignation of the Head of the Special Investigating Unit, Advocate Vas Soni.
Adv Soni has resigned for personal reasons as his wife, Mrs Anitha Soni, is unwell. Mrs Soni is an accomplished businesswoman who has made her mark in the tourism sector. She is also a former Chairperson of Brand SA.
“It is with regret that I accept Adv Soni’s resignation given the good work he has done at the SIU in a short space of time, but I understand the painful personal circumstances. Adv Soni had turned the SIU into an effective instrument of fighting maladministration and corruption given his impressive turnaround time with investigations. We wish him and his wife well during this difficult period. We wish Mrs Soni a return to good health,” said President Zuma.
