Mrwebi possibly misrepresented Dramat’s view on Mdluli case, inquiry hears
Anwa Dramat was called to testify at the Mokgoro Inquiry on Thursday.
Dramat was called to testify at the Mokgoro Inquiry on Thursday and concluded presenting his evidence after 30 minutes.
The general’s testimony focused on confirming the correspondence between himself, Mrwebi and Nomgcobo Jiba.
Evidence leader Nasreen Bawa read from a memorandum drafted by Mrwebi which referred to a meeting he’d had with Dramat in 2012.
“As according to General Dramat, the AG examined the financial statements and issued an audit report in respect to the secret service account did not find anything wrong with that account.”

Asked if he relayed such information to Mrwebi, Dramat said no.
Mrwebi’s counsel advocate Mervyn Rip says that his client will say he didn’t specifically refer to Mdluli, but rather broadly about an audit of a Crime Intelligence account.
“At some stage, we were discussing, however, the Mdluli matter and during that discussion advocate Mrwebi said that you mentioned in passing in the annual report of the Auditor-General, they did not find any irregularities in the accounts.”
