Johannesburg - Former SAA chief financial officer Phumeza Nhantsi has told the state capture inquiry that she feared for her life during her time at the national carrier when its chairperson was Dudu Myeni.
Nhantsi told the commission of inquiry into state capture on Thursday that when she met Myeni in Durban she was scared for her life and felt she needed to be careful.
According to Nhantsi, after SAA cancelled a R256 million transaction advisory services contract awarded to little-known BnP Capital she feared Myeni would do what former SAA non-executive director Yakhe Kwinana had warned her about.
”You have a shelf life,” Kwinana apparently told Nhantsi.
She said she had heard that Myeni would go to Sunnyside, Tshwane and write anonymous whistle-blowing reports on an official and put pressure on them to get them fired or suspended.
