Gwede Mantashe invited members of the media for a tour at his house

In an attempt to clear his name, Minister Gwede Mantashe invited the media to his home in Boksburg. He wanted them to see that the allegations that Bosasa installed extensive security measures at his home are exaggerated.

Gwede Mantashe has been adamant that he is not corrupt and that he was not part of the alleged corruption that ruled the day at Bosasa.

To prove his case, he took journalists to his home in Boksburg.

Earlier this week, the Minister of Mineral Resources and chair of the ANC invited journalists to visit his homes and see for themselves if the accusations are true.

This follows his implication in the alleged bribery and corrupt dealings at BOSASA at the State Capture Inquiry.

Mantashe stated during the tour that if he and his security team knew of the corruption at Bosasa, they would not have allowed the Bosasa staff to install the CCTV systems at his homes.

News24 reported that there isn't any electric fencing at Mantashe's home. There are spotlights, a recording system and night-vision cameras.

Mantashe insists that there is nothing wrong with the Bosasa systems at his home.

There is no problem with Bosasa technology [at my house]. At that point in time there was no big story about Bosasa. What is paying the price is the [Bosasa] brand, which has done many things wrong.
