ANC Chairperson Gwede Mantashe intends on taking the findings of volume three of the State Capture Report on judicial review.
Speaking during a Mineral Resources and Energy ministerial media briefing, Mantashe said his lawyers are going through the report, and will be advising him on the legal avenues he should take to challenge the report’s findings.
According to the report, evidence before it showed that Mantashe should be probed in terms of the Prevention and Combatting of Corrupt Activities Act (Precca). The report implicated him in alleged corruption linked to controversial company Bosasa.
However, Gwedi Mantashe has asked the media to leave him to his work as Mineral Resources and Energy Minister.
He adds that he hasn’t been found guilty of anything, citing the report’s call for further investigations into his alleged corrupt relationship with Bosasa boss, Gavin Watson.
