Former Public Enterprise Minister and ANC MP, Barbara Hogan has broken her silence on the alleged state capture by the controversial Gupta family.
Hogan is not surprised by the confirmation from Deputy Finance Minister Mcebisi Jonas that the Guptas offered him the National Treasury top job.
The overwhelming evidence that has been accumulating over this period of time is proof of how the Guptas have seized control of our state.— Barbara Hogan, former Public Enterprise Minister
She says she never met with the Gupta family, but confirmed claims by former colleague Vytie Mentor that Jet Airways had placed pressure on their portfolio to broker a commercial deal.
That was one of the pressure points, of very many others, that I faced when I was there.— Barbara Hogan, former Public Enterprise Minister
