I think we should reconsider Bruce Koloane's appointment - Minister Pandor

Minister of International Relations and Co-operation (Dirco) Naledi Pandor has requested a meeting with President Cyril Ramaphosa to talk about ambassador to the Netherlands Bruce Koloane.

Koloane confessed at the state capture inquiry that he pushed for the illegal landing of the plane with the Gupta wedding guests at Waterkloof Air Base.

Speaking to Eusebius McKaiser, Minister Pador says the Koloane matter is serious.

Ambassador Koloane is in his last six months of his term and he was not appointed by me or President Ramaphosa.
