JOHANNESBURG -Former Public Enterprises Minister, Barbara Hogan, says she faced attacks from multiple fronts, including ministers, the SACP, and the ANC Youth League, who wanted Siyabonga Gama appointed as Transnet CEO.
She said she was offended when she was labelled as an anti-transformation racist.
Hogan was testifying at the state capture inquiry, about political interference in appointments at state-owned entities.
Hogan's submissions to the state capture inquiry totalled over 300 pages.
Her testimony directly implicates former president Jacob Zuma.
On Monday, she's likely to detail pressure to forego South African Airways' route to India.
Next on the witness list is current Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan, who is expected to testify on Thursday.
A leaked copy of his 69-page statement to the inquiry has caused a ruckus.
Inquiry chair Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has reprimanded those responsible for the leak.
Last week, the Economic Freedom Fighters reported Gordhan to the Public Protector.
The red berets accuse him of lying about a meeting with billionaire Mukesh Ambani and Ajay Gupta.
