The embattled commission said its board had “noted several issues that are receiving media coverage, regarding developments within the commission and is also aware of various allegations being made”.
“We would like to emphasise that while the matters are being dealt with by relevant law enforcement agencies, the commission continues to fulfil its obligations, among others, to follow through on any matters that are brought to its attention, without fear or favour,” the statement reads.
“In conclusion, the board and NLC staff look forward to the chairperson’s stewardship and collaborating with him in applying the principles of openness and transparency in the exercise of the functions of the commission and fulfilling the NLC’s mandate.”
