‘Dan Mantsha has always been indebted to Guptas’
Outa says Mantsha tried to give the Guptas access to the country's defence technologies.
JOHANNESBURG - Civil action group Outa says despite Denel cancelling its partnership with Guptas-linked company VR Laser, chairman Dan Mantsha has always been indebted to the family.
The state-owned arms maker announced last week that it was withdrawing from a joint venture with the Gupta company, citing reputation damage.
However, Outa says Mantsha tried to give the Guptas access to the country's defence technologies and shared confidential government documents with the family.
The organisation's Ben Theron explains: “Confidential memos were sent through to the Guptas. The worst is he asked them to pay a bill of R14,000 for him, so he was indebted to them all the way.”
