- The former ANC MP took to Facebook to defend her Zondo Commission testimony
- She insisted that she did not change her version of events or withdraw evidence
- This comes after Mentor's cross-examination found several parts of her story were not supported by the evidence
Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor has said that she will "never surrender" and will not alter her "truth".
She added that she did not withdraw or change her Zondo Commission testimony.
Mentor made the comments in the wake of her cross-examination, which concluded that several parts of her story did not add up.
Mentor had told the Commission about a meeting she had with the Gupta family in Saxonwold in 2010. However, no records were found of the flight that she claimed to have taken to Johannesburg.
Additionally, an inspection of the Guptas' compound found that the location did not exactly fit Mentor's description. Mentor, however, asserts that the premises has since been renovated, according to Times Live.
Similarly, Ventor initially claimed to have met Ajay Gupta Beijing where she said he was serving as part of a trade delegation. Later she changed her story, and said that Gupta was part of no such delegation.
In response to the doubts about her testimony, Mentor hit back in a combative Facebook post. In the post, she said she would "fight to the bitter end" and insisted that her enemies would have to kill her if they wanted to stop her.
