Zuma denies interaction with Mentor

Former President Jacob Zuma testified at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry on 16 July 2019.

JOHANNESBURG - Former president Jacob Zuma told the Zondo Commission of Inquiry on Tuesday that he never interacted with former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor at the Gupta residence.

Mentor gave evidence at the state capture inquiry that Zuma was present in Saxonwold when Ajay Gupta offered her a ministerial position.

Zuma also denied that Ajay Gupta had any reason to know about a cabinet reshuffle. 

"He shouldn't have known. He was not part of government," he said. 


Zuma confirmed that he remembered who Mentor was.
