Piet Smit is the director of the MNU, the father of Tania van de Merwe and the father-in-law of Wikus van de Merwe. He is one of the main antagonists of District 9.

When Wikus is infected, Smit decides to vivisect him for research and watches completely emotionless as his son-in-law begs for his life. He is the one behind the cover-up that turns Wikus into a fugitive and turns Tania, Wikus's wife against him, by telling her the lie that Wikus has had sexual interactions with a Prawn.

His current legal status is unknown, as Fundiswa Mhlanga exposed MNU's illegal research activities, of which Smit was a part.
