Transnet board chairperson reveals to Zondo commission machinations of Brian Molefe and other 'architects of state capture'.

Transnet board chairperson Popo Molefe has accused former executives Brian Molefe, Anoj Singh and Siyabonga Gama of being the 'architects of state capture' at the state-owned company.

The board chairperson has taken the stand at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture.

Molefe has told the commission of how the executives signed off on several questionable deals with international companies where there were side agreements that would benefit people in a money trail that goes all the way to the Guptas.

Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman attended the commission.

He is setting up this intercity web of individuals which he says worked in a sophisticated manner to undermine and weaken the accountability mechanisms and systems within Transnet to facilitate this state capture project.

Bateman says 13 witnesses are expected to be called during this first phase of the focus on Transnet.

These won't just be Transnet employees; we have heard about outside organisations, forensic companies, attorneys, firms which have conducted forensic investigations of these questionable deals that Transnet was engaged in.
