Vytjie Mentor, to be reviewed before the Zondo commission

A former member of the ANC Vytjie Mentor will return to the Zonda Investigation Committee on alleged cover of the country on Monday and will be the first witness to be investigated.

According to the commission's statement, the Mentor will return to the scene to complete his evidence and be cross-examined by those who have been permitted.

Duduzane Zuma, son of former President Jacob Zuma, and businessman Fan Hlongwana will cross-check the mentor.

Two Gupta brothers also asked to question the Mentor, but was rejected by Deputy Chairman Raymond Zondo, who chairs the investigation. The decision was made on the grounds that they refused to testify in South Africa and wished to appear remotely before the commission.

Mentor testified before the commission in August last year, claiming that Guptas offered her ministerial position to public companies in her Saxonworld complex.

The mentor told the commission that Ajay Gupta had offered her a job if she had dropped her on a trip to Mumbai so that Gupta-related Jup Airways could benefit from it.

She also claimed that Duduzane Zuma presented it to one of Gupta's brothers and that she was at the Gupta Complex when she met Ajay.

Prior to this, Mentor turned to the commission after acknowledging that he might have incorrectly identified the man whom Duduzane Zuma presented as Fana Hlongwane.
