He disputed former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's State of Capture report, as well as claims made by former mining minister Ngoako Ramatlhodi.

Ramatlhodi has claimed that Molefe and former Eskom board chair Ben Ngubane asked him to suspend Glencore's mining licence.

Glencore's Optimum mine was later bought by the Gupta family.
