EFF to protest at state capture inquiry ahead of Gordhan testimony

Must Read

Julius Malema says the EFF will protest outside the State Capture Inquiry on Monday where Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan is expected to testify. Malema says Gordhan enabled state looters.

Much of his testimony is already known as his 69-page affidavit was leaked two weeks ago.

Gordhan is expected to be questioned on any and all meetings with members of the Gupta family.

In his testimony, Gordhan says the Guptas regularly wanted to meet him but that he “refused to schedule a meeting with the Gupta family, whether at their residence or anywhere else”.

But the EFF says that Gordhan is lying because in a reply to a parliamentary question he had said he had never met the family. Gordhan also says in his testimony that he was once introduced to another Gupta brother, Ajay Gupta, when he ran into him at the presidential guest house, Mahlamba Ndlopfu, when he arrived for a meeting with Zuma.

Other than that, he says that he only saw one of the three Gupta brothers at a cricket match and that they had often been at government functions as guests of the president which were attended by Cabinet ministers.
