WATCH: Molefe to continue with Transnet-related evidence before Zondo

Will continue with Transnet evidence at the commission today after angry exchange on Tuesday.


Former Transnet group CEO Brian Molefe will continue his evidence for the third day before Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture chairperson Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo on Wednesday morning about his time at the railway company.

On his second day, Molefe’s testimony was marked by an angry outburst and exchange with commission evidence leader advocate Anton Myburgh.

This was after Myburgh asked whether Molefe was reading notes from his cellphone in response to questions, with Molefe calling him “a witchdoctor”.

It was revealed that Molefe approved a generous performance incentive payment of R78 million to Gupta-linked transaction advisors Regiments Capital for having saved the state-owned enterprise R2.8 billion in 2012.

“I did not have to approve the additional payment for Regiments Capital as an act of good business practice. I did it because there was R2.8 billion on the table. I don’t know if you understand how much money that is for Transnet,” Molefe said.
