The State Capture Commission has released a statement confirming that the Mayor of Johannesburg, Geoff Makhubo is set to testify, after being implicated in questionable dealings relating to EOH.
The State Capture Commission took to Twitter on Thursday, 26 November 2020, to confirm that the Mayor of Johannesburg, Geoff Makhubo is set to take the stand. He and former Transnet treasurer, Phetolo Ramosebudi are both scheduled to appear before the commission.
Makhubo is arguably the most anticipated figure set to take the stand today between the two. This is after the damning testimony by Steven David Powell, which alleged that Makhubo and Deputy State Security Minister, Zizi Kodwa were amongst those who received questionable payments in dealings with EOH. Makhubo will need to address the matter clearly, should he wish to clear his name of the corruption claims.
However, that is not to say that should he fail to clear his name, he will be removed from his position. This is in light of the numerous political figures who have been implicated in corrupt dealings, but have kept their positions of power.
The proceedings are set to take place on Friday, 27 November 2020, from 10:00.
