Montana on Fiday said some of the NEC members picked a fight with him because of his stance on the rail agency.
Remember Mhlekazi, it is not only the Guptas I fought but our own comrades in the NEC who plotted my downfall. https://t.co/HV8ipJ15Cj
Montana accused Deputy Minister of Public Enterprises Ben Martins of being economical with the truth on the Guptas.
This was after Martins said Montana had brought Tony Gupta to his ministerial house in Pretoria to discuss Prasa matters.
The Guptas wanted me removed late 2012 and failed. Our NEC comrades forced me out when I refuse to give them money. https://t.co/HV8ipJ15Cj
On Friday Montana upped the ante and accused some of the NEC members of meddling in the Prasa affairs. In a series of Tweets Montana said he was no longer fighting the Guptas, but some members of the NEC. “I resigned from Prasa because it was no longer the Guptas I was up against, but big boys in the ANC NEC,” tweeted Montana.
I resigned from PRASA because it was no longer the Guptas I was up against but Big Boys in the ANC NEC. https://t.co/HV8ipIJudJ
In a subsequent tweet, he said the ANC never allowed him to explain.
The ANC never asked me or Sfiso Buthelezi to come & explain ourselves about PRASA. It only called for swift action. https://t.co/HV8ipJ15Cj
