Accusations fly between axed PetroSA chair & ex ambassador
Tshepo Kgadima went on the offensive this morning, claiming Zola Skweyiya has not told the truth.
JOHANNESBURG - The Central Energy Fund (CEF) says it will deal with Tshepo Kgadima's legal challenge to his removal as chair of PetroSA, should he ever actually mount one.
Kgadima's appointment was withdrawn last week after former ambassador to Britain Zola Skweyiya claimed he had lied to investors about the assets he controlled.
This morning, Kgadima gave his first interview to Talk Radio 702's John Robbie since his removal from office.
Kgadima went on the offensive this morning, claiming Skweyiya has not told the truth.
"He is not an investor, never been an investor, has never given me any money personally as has been reported. I don't think that he is mistaken. "
But Skweyiya's family spokesperson Nkululeko Skweyiya says it's Kgadima who is lying.
"It's a known fact that his assets have been bogus. It's a mark of a desperate man going around trying to rally, saying he has been vilified and what-so-ever."
The CEF says its position is that Kgadima is no longer part of its organisation and that it's moved on.
