Vytjie Mentor's full statement to state capture commission

2018-08-29 13:39

Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor has ended almost three days of testimony before the State Capture Commission. 

Mentor detailed, among other things, her encounter with then president Jacob Zuma at the Gupta compound in Saxonwold in 2010, weeks ahead of a reshuffle in which public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan was fired.

Mentor told the commission that Zuma had walked in while she was in an altercation with the eldest of the Gupta brothers, Ajay, after she rejected the offer of a Cabinet position in exchange for dropping the SAA Johannesburg-Mumbai route in favour of Gupta airline JetAirways.

She later said that after opening a case against "highly placed" individuals including Zuma, his son Duduzane Zuma and ministers, she was worried that her case would be swept under the carpet.
