Compelling evidence of corruption by ministers and parastatal higher-ups can no longer be ignored - From The M&G Online
The emails also show that Zwane, as Free State MEC for agriculture, supported a diary project there that appeared to channel provincial subsidies to the Guptas.
To add insult to injury, the emails suggest Mantsha was intimately aware of the Gupta family’s involvement in the planned Denel Asia subsidiary – even when his board denied such involvement time and again.
But the emails do suggest that Koko, or someone pretending to be him, shared confidential Eskom information with the Guptas and that he was treated to a luxury Dubai trip at the family’s expense, a benefit that could be found to be corrupt.
In the Gupta leaks revelations, Bruce Koloane was found to have written the family emails asking for sponsorships for personal events – and, as the emails seemingly show, instructions were issued that he was to be given “whatever he wants”.
Singh, as chief financial officer, must have been privy to the family’s bid to buy the Optimum Coal mine – and, as they were short of cash, Eskom authorised a controversial prepayment for coal supply to them that enabled Gupta company Tegeta to buy the mine.
