[WATCH LIVE] #StateCaptureInquiry Mentor links Zuma to Gupta meeting
Mentor started her testimony on Monday by detailing her visit to the Gupta family’s Saxonwold compound.
JOHANNESBURG - Former African National Congress (ANC) MP Vytjie Mentor has told the commission of inquiry into state capture that President Jacob Zuma didn't seem at all surprised when she told him about the offers one of the Gupta brothers had made to her at the family's Saxonwold house.
Mentor says Zuma walked into the room in which she was meeting one of the Guptas, shortly after an offer of a ministerial job was made to her.
She started her testimony on Monday by detailing her visit to the Gupta family’s Saxonwold compound, where she alleged that she was offered the position of Minister of Public Enterprises if she promised to drop the SAA flight route to India.
Mentor’s testimony not only implicated former Zuma, his son Duduzane and his former advisor, the former ANC MP also spoke about Minister Malusi Gigaba.
