Johannesburg - Axed Transnet CEO Siyabonga Gama has criticised former public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan for her testimony at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture.
Hogan told commission chairman Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo earlier this week that the former president Jacob Zuma had pushed for Gama "and no one else" to be appointed CEO. She also testified that she was unfairly treated by the pro-Zuma camp.
"I cast as an anti-transformation racist who did not appreciate the necessity for transformation in this country," she said.
However, Gama has slammed her testimony.
"Ms Barbara Hogan's submission is replete with inconsistencies and omissions, which he believes were deliberately advanced to further a nefarious agenda to vilify and damage Mr Gama’s reputation," said Gama's spokesperson, Gcobisa May.
