Abram Mashego is the journalist who brought Radovan Krejcir back into the limelight with the latest development in the ongoing scandals surrounding the Czech mobster.

Speaking to Karima Brown recently, he revealed how the Czech gangster, traveled to Nklandla to meet with ex-president Jacob Zuma and his son, Duduzane, in order to secure asylum in South Africa, recently gave an interview to discuss the case.

According to City Press, they are in possession of a signed affidavit detailing the events that led to Krejcir allegedly paying R2.5 million in exchange for asylum. The affidavit also details the relationship between Duduzane Zuma and Krejcir.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Moe Shaik, who had headed SA Secret Service at that point, had been enraged by the friendship and warned the ex-president of the implications thereof

“Beeka introduced Duduzane to Krejcír and Moe Shaik was very angry at Beeka’s actions. Shaik was angry that the son of the president was seen with the number one gangster,” Krejcir said in the affidavit.

Jacob Zuma allegedly promised Krejcir that Malusi Gigaba (then Home Affairs Minister) would handle the paperwork involved. Gigaba has naturally denied any involvement.

Karima Brown also spoke to former head of the South African Secret Services, Mo Shaik, in the recording, asking him if he would consider appearing before the Zondo commission. Shaik replied:

"If I’m called before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture, I would consider it my duty, as the citizen of the country, to disclose whatever I have to. Legally, the commission would have to find a way in which we can provide the information without opening ourselves up for any prosecution,”
