Former Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) CEO Lucky Montana has lodged a complaint against Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo. Montana said there is a good chance Zondo 'has been captured'.
The former corruption accused CEO has asked the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) to investigate what he calls "gross misconduct and incompetent behaviour" displayed by Zondo as chairperson of the State Capture Inquiry.
Montana has filed a 45-page affidavit asking the JSC to investigate Zondo's handling of the corruption allegations involving PRASA.
eNCA reported that Montana said Zondo breached the Judicial Code of Conduct by compromising the Hawks and National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) independence when he asked why no one has been arrested for corruption at PRASA.
Montana has also accused the State Capture Inquiry of shielding Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan and Werksmans attorneys.
Montana claims that the inquiry's legal team and investigators are trying to sabotage his evidence. Montana has also accused Zondo of worshipping former PRASA chair Popo Molefe.
He added that he will appear before the State Capture Inquiry and give his side the of the evidence that shows how all the contracts he awarded had been above board.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Montana wrote a scathing letter to Zondo telling him he is not "God".
Montana lashed out at Zondo, accusing him of lacking a sense of "fairness and commitment to justice" in his chairing of the State Capture Inquiry. Montana also copied Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng in his letter.
The commission is investigating Montana’s multi-million-rand property purchase and whether he used PRASA money to fund his purchases. The two properties are said to be worth R25 million. Montana has disputed the allegations.
