Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor continued giving her testimony at the Zondo Commission of inquiry into state capture at Parktown, Johannesburg.
Mentor has on Wednesday highlighted some discrepancies with the typed out statement by the Hawks, saying that the commission should regard her own written statement as the true reflection of events and disregard the typed out statement.
EWN reporter Bonga Dlulane says Mentor told the commission that the typed out statement is very problematic and doesn't agree with it and that the dates are different to the statement she had written.
She says she has serious questions as to why the Hawks would give her supplementary statement, she says that she doesn't recognise it.— Bonga Dlulane, EWN reporter
She went as far as saying that even the signature on the typed out statement was not hers.— Bonga Dlulane, EWN reporter
Dlulane says the commission was supposed to have Themba Maseko, former head of Government Communication and Information Systems on the stand, but the commission wanted to make sure they obtain every detail from Mentor.
He says the typed statement has different locations where it was signed and Mentor has denied ever being there. Her statement was supported by advocate Motolo who said Mentor fell sick on the day they were supposed to meet.
Mentor also told the commission that she informed the then Secretary-General of ANC Gwede Mantashe and his deputy Jessie Duarte in 2010 about the job offer by the Guptas but they did not seem interested in what she had to say.
Mantashe says what Mentor is saying is "fake", while Duarte said she has never spoken to Mentor about this and that she only became deputy secretary-general in 2012.
