PsetaBusinessLive reports that President Jacob Zuma has signed a proclamation allowing the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) to look into allegations of unlawful and irregular transactions at the Public Service Sector Education and Training Authority (PSETA).  

In a statement on Tuesday, the Presidency said Zuma had signed the proclamation in terms of Section 2 of the SIU Act as well as the Special Tribunals Act.  Some have read the move by Zuma as signifying that he might be looking to close in on one-time ally turned nemesis Blade Nzimande, whom he dropped from the Cabinet last week.  Nzimande had held the portfolio of Minister of Higher Education and Training (DHET).  Zuma also signed a proclamation allowing the SIU to probe the Alfred Nzo municipality in the Eastern Cape for maladministration and intentional or negligent loss of public money.
