Mantashe denies having any dealings with BOSASA

Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe has yet again denied having had any dealings with BOSASA.

The report of the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture has implicated him in having dealings with the company.

Mantashe was speaking at the fifth annual Platinum Group Metals Industry Day conference in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

“I had dealings with an individual who was working with Bosasa and there were no security upgrades. I was putting cameras on my properties working with this young man. In hindsight, we discovered that it’s the property of BOSASA.”

“But the Zondo Commission report, they don’t test it because I represented myself. They check it and discover that they cannot find any prima-facie case of corruption in my name. It says somebody must go and look and find a case against me which they could not find.”

Minister Gwede Mantashe briefs media on State Capture report:

Last month, while addressing the media, following the release of Part Three of the State Capture Commission report, Mantashe said he will not step aside until a prima facie case against him has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
