Former Free State MEC Mxolisi Dukwana claims that ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule took him to the Guptas compound in Saxonwold in 2012 where a deal was discussed.
Dukwana says Magashule took him there under the pretence that they were doing fundraising for their office but instead he was presented with a letter which he needed to sign agreeing to put the Guptas in charge of a construction project.
He says he was promised R2 million after signing the document and R2 million every month after that for the duration of the project.
The fact that Magashule took me there under pretence immediately came to me that he knew what was happening.— Mxolisi Dukwana, former Free State economic development MEC
Magashule has accused Dukwana of lying and tarnishing his name, saying he is playing political games.
I've known comrade Ace for a very long time and I know for a fact that he has never taken responsibility for anything. He has his own way of dealing with issues facing him in that he would say that people are lying the thing is it will be proven who is lying between himself and I.— Mxolisi Dukwana, former Free State economic development MEC
He says Magashule gets rid of anyone who disagrees with him.
This is not an invention of my imagination— Mxolisi Dukwana, former Free State economic development MEC
Dukwana says he didn't go public with the information because there was no commission of inquiry and he knew that the ANC would not give him the support he needed, believing instead the matter would have been swept under the carpet 'as they always do'.
He says there are records that will prove what he is saying is true.
If you check our cell phone records on the day they will indicate where we were...— Mxolisi Dukwana, former Free State economic development MEC
Dukwana adds that the information will be taken to the commission of inquiry into state capture. He says he is advising Magashule to also present himself to the commission to give his side of the story.
