Another South African Minister of Environment Affairs (ANC) taking kick backs for the sale of a game farm, how can South Africans trust any of the Ministers in the (ANC) – does democracy (ANC) – mean they allowed taking money and making stupid decisions on behalf of South Africans?

Johannesburg – Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, has refuted a media report that she has received kickbacks.

According to the minister’s spokesman Palesa Mokomele, allegations that Joemat-Pettersson benefited from a game farm sale were “unsubstantiated and regrettable”.

“Those who know Minister Joemat-Pettersson know her to be a people orientated leader who consistently serves others and strives for the development of rural women and rural communities,” Mokomele said.

“The said farm was for the benefit of rural women through skills development and employment creation.”

The newspaper reported that Joemat-Pettersson was being investigated for allegedly taking a kick-back for arranging the purchase of a game farm for disadvantaged women worth an estimated R18 million.

According to the report, she was allegedly paid R100,000 in 2006 for her efforts in closing the purchase of Sunset Game Lodge, outside Douglas. Joemat-Pettersson was MEC in the Northern Cape at the time.

The minister and the lawyer — Monica du Toit — who allegedly facilitated the deal were the focus of an investigation by the Asset Forfeiture Unit (AFU) and the Special Investigation Unit (SPU).

Mokomele said Joemat-Pettersson would fully co-operate with any investigation into the matter.

“The minister will request that both the Parliamentary Ethics Committee and the African National Congress’s integrity committee investigate all allegations levelled against her and her conduct,” said Mokomele.

REMINDER

Opposition parties maintained yesterday  the report was a whitewash and that the scandal proved that Zuma and his executive had put the country and its citizens in danger through their “corrupt relationship” with the Gupta family – if her boss can do this – why can’t she also do as she likes…..
