Johannesburg - A day after former senior ANC MP Vytjie Mentor caused a storm when she alleged that she was offered a Cabinet position by the Gupta family, she announced she was back on South African soil.

Mentor made the allegation on Facebook while she was on holiday in Thailand.

On Wednesday morning, she again took to the social networking site to announce she was home.

"I am back home. I will be resting for 48 hours. Talk to you guys thereafter," she wrote.

This was followed by a second post which read: "I was raised on the TRUTH, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!! I am standing where I am standing. I love South Africa too much. I am NOT raffled. The truth shall be victorious at the end. The truth always win [sic]!"

When News24 tried to contact Mentor her phone was off.

Her Facebook profile was littered with messages of support and queries for more information about her allegation.

Mentor made the allegation in response to Democratic Alliance member Johann Abrie's post on Monday about the Guptas offering deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas the job of finance minister before Nhlanhla Nene was removed.

She wrote: "But they had previously asked me to become Minister of Public Enterprises when Barbara Hogan got the chop, provided that I would drop the SAA flight-route to India and give to them. I refused and so I was never made a Minister. The President was in another room when they offered me this in Saxonworld. [sic]"

Despite her allegation, President Jacob Zuma has claimed that he had "no recollection of Ms Mentor and is not aware of the alleged incidents in her career".
