Former Anglo Gold Ashanti (AGA) chairperson Sipho Pityana claims that the mining company offered to settle sexual harassment allegations against him, if he resigns as director.

This is denied by the AGA.

Pityana dropped a bombshell on Monday, claiming that Absa nominated him to become chairperson, but that the SA Reserve Bank’s Prudential Authority (PA), which oversees the banks, vetoed him. This was due to "undue influence" by current AGA chair Maria Ramos, who informed the board of the harassment allegations, Pityana contends.
