MAPHOSA 'Tossed UNDER BUS'
He told the Zondo Commission yesterday that Ramaphosa, who was agent president at that point, was an investor at the mine. He said Glencore, which claimed OCM, needed to build the coal cost from R150 to R400 per ton. "What OCM was putting on the table was over the top and unlawful on the grounds that we had a current arrangement they would run until 2018," he said.
Molefe said the aggregate sum Glencore attempted to coerce was R8 billion.
He said they did this as they believed they had a decent connection with Ramaphosa. He said he referenced this when he showed up before the request in January.
"I'm saying this now in light of the fact that while we are recapping, it's not referenced. I currently trust it isn't hidden away from plain view and is failed to remember advantageously," he said.
Commission executive Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo said the individuals who are involved must be informed so they could react. He didn't utter a word was being hidden where no one will think to look.
Molefe said when he wouldn't move, OCM undermined they'd quit offering coal to Eskom, which would prompt force deficiencies.
"Offering the mine to the Guptas was a masterstroke. They were so furious and they planned to begin a mission to corrupt us as Gupta individuals. There was a media mission to waste us as Gupta individuals," he said.
He said this was done in light of the fact that he wouldn't be harassed and controlled.
Molefe is claimed to have assumed a part in the R1,6 billion which was paid to Gupta organization Tegeta in December 2015 and a prepayment of R659 million in April 2016.
He guaranteed government has not done what's necessary to enable individuals of color.
"The administrative system has permitted a couple of white organizations to abuse our coal."
