- South Africa reacted to the news of Kodwa being implicated again in dodgy deals
Zizi Kodwa's name was linked to payments made to the tune of R375 000 from Jehan Mackay, an executive at a large tech company. According to evidence presented on behalf of EOH, at least three ANC officials were paid.
The evidence was present by Steven Powell the head law firm ENS's forensic department according to Times Live.
Mzansi reacted to the news that Kodwa's name was dropped again in connection with suspicious payments, according to City Press Kodwa also received R180 000 between 2015 to 2017.
"The payments #EOH made to Zizi Kodwa are very interesting. It comes on the back of earlier indications that Kodwa also received money from Free State #asbestos contractor Edwin Sodi. Was Kodwa some sort of a fixer extraordinaire? #zondocommision."
Here are some more gut reactions to the news:
"Mr Siyabulela n Zizi Kodwa beans spilled today at Zondo commission "
"Was that a loan? A loan from a friend."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Mayor of Johannesburg Geoff Makhubo is expected to testify at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry on Friday. Leader of the ActionSA party, Herman Mashaba reacted to the news:
"This is going to be very interesting to watch."
According to a report by AmaBhungane, Makhubo allegedly secretly benefited from a City of Johannesburg contract. From this contract Makhubo benefited by more or less R30 million from Regiments, who are state capture facilitators.
Makhubo also might have allegedly profited from these dealings while he was the MMC of Finance.
In other news, Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has moved to lay a criminal complaint against former president Jacob Zuma after his exodus from the State Capture Inquiry.
On Thursday Zuma left the commission after Zondo passed down his ruling over Zuma's application for Zondo's recusal.
The ex-president had accused the State Capture Inquiry chair of being not only biased but also claimed the pair had a 'close relationship'.
Zondo announced that the inquiry would be issuing a fresh summons against Zuma to appear before the commission.
