|Corrupt scumbag Brian Molefe|
12th of November 2016
Following the former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s State Capture report into corrupt ANC officials and their dealings and wheelings with the Gupta family, Eskom’s CEO Brian Molefe did the honourably thing, publicly cried some more crocodile tears and resigned.
Brian Molefe resigns from Eskom; denies wrongdoing
Amazingly the South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco) reckoned it was a setback for black excellence
Can somebody please explain to me how in the world it is possible that anybody can praise this corrupt scumbag and see him as a symbol of “Black Excellence”, an oxymoron if ever I have seen one?
The destruction of Eskom, load shedding, corrupt dealings between Eskom and the Guptas…Transnet and the Guptas…all on Molefe’s watch and they call that “Black excellence”? They must be condoning corruption.
Recently it has emerged that Molefe and Ajay Gupta, the eldest of three Gupta brothers, made 58 telephone calls to one another between August 2015 and March 2016. Molefe virtually camped out at the Gupta’s Saxonwold Shebeen. What were these calls and visits all about?
Let me explain to you what this bastard did in simple terms by means of a few examples, because everywhere you look, everywhere you start to scratch, you find a can of Gupta and Zuma worms. They are corrupt to the core.
|How electricity prices went up and production down |
under the ANC
Eskom holds a monopoly on electricity in South Africa. So when they hike prices, we have no other choice but to shut the fuck up and pay. Brian Molefe raised electricity tariffs to unaffordable levels and then prepaid the Guptas R650 million of your money for substandard coal Eskom did not need so that the Guptas could purchase all the shares in Optimum Coal Holdings (OCH), a company owned hitherto by mining giant Glencore in order to become the sole supplier of coal to Eskom’s power stations.
How electricity prices escalated and production fell since 2008
The lying scumbag Molefe then went and told the public: “We are just asking for money to deal with the issue of load shedding.”
Eskom needs tariff increase because load shedding is expensive: CEO
Now remember that Sanco calls this: “Black excellence” and sees Molefe as a savior and “The man who ended loadshedding”…
|Transnet Tender Scheme|
Of course, Iqbal Sharma got his position at Transnet due to the Gupta’s string pulling, because the Gupta’s and Duduzane Zuma’s company “Westdawn Investments” owns “Craysure Investments” that owns 25% of Boksburg, Gauteng engineering firm “VR Lasers” that was sub contracted to oversee the local manufacturing part of the trains. Salim Essa, another Gupta business associate, took 75% share.
Corporate records show that VR Laser is registered to the same Grayston, Sandton, office park where other Gupta businesses are based. VR Laser’s only three directors are Essa, Pushpaveni Govender, who is also a director of other Gupta companies, and Kamal Singhala, a 25-year-old nephew of the Guptas who gives his address as the family’s Saxonwold compound.
Gupta’s VR Laser holds 49% share in Denel Asia
Transnet bosses R50 Billion double game
Denel, who has the state as its only shareholder, launched its Gupta joint venture, Denel Asia, without approval from the finance and public enterprises ministers (Pravin Gordhan and Lynne Brown respectively) as required.
Not only that. All whistleblowers and Transnet employees who questioned these dodgy tender deals were threatened and intimidated and “Mafia style” investigations by a “forensic team” under Transnet’s bosses was used to dig up dirt on them. They even tried to gag newspapers reporting on their criminal dealings
But it doesn’t stop there. Transnet contracted Neotel to the tune of R2-Billion to supply them with routers and other equipment. Neotel contracted a “letterbox company” called Homix to supply the equipment at R66 million in kickbacks. A further R25-million was agreed but not yet paid.
|Homix "head office"|
This Indian man turned out to be Ashok Narayan, who claimed to be Homix’s Chief Executive Officer, a 2013 LinkedIn profile, (now offline) identified him as the then managing director of Sahara Systems, a business owned by the influential Gupta family. Of course the Guptas have distanced themselves from their association with Narayan – and from Homix, but a Mail & Guardian investigation showed that Narayan is claiming to be managing director of a Dubai company, the Marketing Quotient, since April 2014. It appears to do sales for Etisalat, one of two mobile phone providers in the United Arab Emirates.
Transnet has awarded two more large projects – closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems worth R835-million – to Neotel without tender and while Neotel was interacting with Homix. The CCTV’s were to be used in the harbours of South Africa.
Brian Molefe, the chief executive at the time, approved the “confinement” of this contract to Neotel in May 2014.
Neotel’s board commissioned an investigation into the payments after the company’s auditors (Deloitte) blew the whistle to it in April 2015. In August, its CEO and CFO took special leave and resigned.
Kickback scandal engulfs Transnet
Transnet kickback scandal widens
Where did all the Transnet money come from that they throw around and siphon off to Gupta companies? White railway worker’s pension fund of course. That is why former Railway worker’s wives are starving and living on bread and water today.
Now The DA wants to lay charges against Molefe
The EFF called Molefe a “mythomaniac” (a person who lies or makes up stories) and called for the entire Eskom board to be sacked because his conduct would not have been possible without consent from the board.
However…I say blindfold the bastards and put them up against a wall.Molefe first!!
Watch the scumbag cry: “I never got the chance to answer” – Brian Molefe.
