Johan Booysen, former KZN Hawks head testified in front of the State Capture Inquiry Commission and said Duduzane Zuma drove him to meet with Tony Gupta. He added that Zuma didn't take part in the meeting.
Johan Booysen, the ex-boss of the KZN Hawks, continued his testimony in front of the State Capture Inquiry on Friday, 3 May.
Booysen gave details about meeting with Tony Gupta at the Gupta home in Saxonwold.
He testified that Duduzane Zuma arrived in a Rolls Royce and drove him to the meeting, which he had no knowledge of before it happened.
According to The Citizen, Booysen's son drove behind him and Zuma in his Toyota.
Booysen testified that when they arrived at the compound, their phones were taken away.
He added that Zuma did not take part in the meeting at all. Furthermore, he said Gupta did not promise him anything, pressure him to do anything or give him anything during the meeting.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Booysen did, however, find it strange that Gupta knew he had been put on the shortlist to become the KZN Hawks boss because this info wasn't public knowledge yet.
Booysen said that Gupta then told him if he got the job they should have supper in KZN, according to NEWS24.
"I suspect that what he [Gupta] was trying to tell me was that, should I be appointed, although he did not say that, is that he probably would have had a hand in my appointment and that I might have been indebted to him, although it was never said, those were my conclusions."
The hearings are set to continue on Monday, 6 May.
