"This 20 million needs to go to ministers, its short of 5 million to be complete" says Tlatsana as she relays what she is hearing in the recording.
Tlatsana said on the instruction of SA Express manager Brian van Wyk, she obtained details for the party and made the payment.
“Mr van Wyk was putting pressure that day saying we should put money into the ANC. Everything he spoke about was ANC this and ANC that.
However, she claimed she has no idea why she had to do so.
“How much did you pay donation to the ANC?” Chair Raymond Zondo asked.
“R1 million chair.” Tlatsana revealed.
“1 million rand?” Zondo probed.
“Yes chair.” Tlatsana responded.
The businesswoman added that the money she paid as a donation to the party was in 2016.
