'Jonas's evidence was breathtaking'
It was one thing to suspect the unbridled hubris of the Guptas, but it was another to hear it from someone who experienced it first-hand.
Former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas revealed some shocking encounters with the Guptas at the #StateCaptureInquiry last week.
Jonas shared his encounters with the Guptas.
We have been following you; We have been investigating you; We know everything about you, and so we called you so we could check you out.Mcebisi Jonas, Former Minister of Finance
You must understand that we are in control of everything; we are in control of the NPA, the Hawks, National Intelligence; so we are in full control, and the old man will do everything that we tell him to do. And if you tell anyone about this meeting, we’ll kill you!Mcebisi Jonas, Former Minister of Finance
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa Associate Editor at Tiso BlackStar Group Ranjeny Munusamy says Jonas's evidence was breathtaking.
As he uttered every line, you get the feeling of being utterly sick, that these people had this amount of audacity, to be able to say this.Ranjeny Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso BlackStar Group
The worrying thing is I wondered how many other people they said this to who didn't come forward. And I think this is the big question that arises now if you look at the extent of state capture and what happened across the state system, is who kept quiet?Ranjeny Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso BlackStar Group
Who else heard lines like this and kept silent about it?Ranjeny Munusamy, Associate Editor at Tiso BlackStar Group
