Meet AngloGold’s Sipho Pityana (who calls JZ ‘sponsor and chief of corruption')

The vested interests around President Jacob Zuma aren’t as powerful as the combined efforts of the South African citizenry.

It’s not only about seeing Jacob Zuma go. It’s about reasserting ethical leadership.

Sipho Pityana, AngloGold Ashanti

We need to say with a combined voice - irrespective of our party political differences - we will not tolerate corruption! We will not tolerate State Capture!

Sipho Pityana, AngloGold Ashanti

AngloGold Ashanti Chair Sipho Pityana became a household name when, earlier this month at the Mining Indaba in Johannesburg, he called President Jacob Zuma the “sponsor and chief of corruption in South Africa”.

He also went on record saying that he believes Thabo Mbeki to be one the greatest leaders South Africa has ever produced, while Jacob Zuma is one of the worst.

Who is the outspoken Pityana?

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed him for his weekly “ShapeShifter” feature.
