[LISTEN] Former Denel chairman is trying to get away, says Outa
Denel chairman Daniel Mantsha‚ has resigned.
Mantsha was accused, by civil action group Outa, of trying to give the Guptas access to the country's defence technologies and sharing confidential government documents with the family.
In September last year‚ the organisation laid charges of corruption against Mantsha for his role in the Denel Asia project‚ a joint venture between Denel and Gupta-owned companies to supply arms to the Asian market.
Karima Brown spoke to Outa Chief Operating Officer Ben Theron.
He is definitely trying to get away from somebody who is very hard and harsh on corruption.Ben Theron, Outa Chief Operating Officer
Denel reports to the department of Public Enterrises, and remember there is a DG called Richard Seleke there that has also got the sword hanging over his head, because of sharing of confidential information with the Guptas, We believe shortly others will fall as well. Including Richard Seleke.Ben Theron, Outa Chief Operating Officer
