State Capture Inquiry

Vytjie Mentor testified she feared for her safety

Former African National Congress (ANC) Member of Parliament Vytjie Mentor will wrap up her testimony at the #StateCaptureInquiry on Wednesday.

Tuesday's testimony saw the former MP breaking down while speaking about a faulty door at a hotel where the commission has booked her stay, adding she didn't want to be alarmist, but she feared for her safety.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, EWN reporter, Clement Manyathela says Mentor broke down about how she felt unsafe at the hotel.

She got sympathy from the deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo who said rightly so, given the testimony that you have given. She said they had changed rooms for her after she raised some concerns with the latch of the door.

It is important to note that she spoke about how she pulled the now deputy secretary general Jessie Duarte about that meeting with the Gupta family where she was offered that ministerial post.

I see News 24 has managed to speak to Duarte and she says she has not spoken to Mentor about that specific meeting.

The only time that she interacted with her was when Mentor raised other concerns and definitely not that meeting she had with the Guptas.
