The ANC and the SACP’s bid to have Siyabonga Gama appointed CEO of Transnet in 2009, despite a cloud of allegations over his head and against the wishes of the board, will come under scrutiny at the Zondo commission. 

ANC chair Gwede Mantashe and SACP general secretary Blade Nzimande are among those called to the state capture commission to respond to explosive claims that former public enterprises minister Barbara Hogan will make of political interference in the management and appointments at state-owned enterprises. 

Hogan was dumped from the cabinet in October 2010 by former president Jacob Zuma after she refused to toe the line on key appointments in parastatals, which later became the target of Gupta looting. She is due to testify on November 12.
