Cape Town - ANC national chairperson Gwede Mantashe says he wants journalists to see the security upgrades at his homes - allegedly installed by Bosasa - before he gives evidence at the state capture commission of inquiry led by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo.
This week Richard Le Roux, an IT specialist, told the inquiry that Bosasa, now known as African Global Operations, installed security upgrades costing R300 000 at three properties owned by the ANC chairperson and Mineral Resources Minister and that of other high-ranking officials over the years.
Le Roux said his team installed closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras and lighting at Mantashe's Boksburg home in Gauteng; at a farm in Elliot, Eastern Cape; and at a third property in Cala, in the Eastern Cape.
On Saturday Mantashe posted on Twitter: "I have to clarify the issue."
"The #Bosasa issue has opened up an avenue for people to attack me in person from different angles. Others are disappointed for me to be associated with #BosasaSaga, which I apologise to. Others are 'Fishers of Corrupt Men', those will be disappointed. I have to clarify the issue.
