On Van Rooyen's agenda - find work for Trillian
Just a month after Des van Rooyen took office as minister of co-operative governance and traditional affairs, he met Gupta associates to give them department business.
Van Rooyen was appointed to the post on December 13 2015, after his four-day stint as finance minister, and a week later made a one-day trip to Dubai that was paid for by the Gupta family.
E-mails and documents show that about three weeks after the Dubai trip he asked Trillian Management Consulting to assist with the department's strategic plan in provinces and municipalities.
And his adviser Mohamed Bobat gave Trillian, then owned by Gupta associates Salim Essa and Eric Wood, guidance in how to structure their proposal for the department.
