Manyi ‘disappointed’ by Gordhan’s testimony at Zondo commission
Mzwanele Manyi told the commission that he thought former Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan would have tangible information and the paper trail.
JOHANNESBURG - Former head of Government Communications Mzwanele Manyi has described Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan's testimony as disappointing, saying he failed to provide evidence of state capture.
“That’s where I struggled actually, I booked off the whole day to listen to Mr Gordhan. I thought because he was the minister of finance, he is going to have tangible information, the paper trail and all that. I struggled. And I sat here and listened, and I lost concentration, to be honest. I think by definition it means if you’ve lost concentration you can’t hear as effective.”
Manyi is testifying at the state capture commission in Parktown, Johannesburg, on Monday afternoon.
He also says he is disappointed that not a single person who has appeared before the commission has provided proof that the Guptas were involved in crimes.
