Former Gigaba adviser denies pushing for Gama’s reinstatement at Transnet


In the first e-mail dated January 18 2011, Mahlangu told Gigaba: “I understand Transnet may be nearing settlement. I will obtain the details of the settlement and brief you accordingly. I suggest you socialise the president and his key aides on the proposed settlement.”

In the second e-mail sent on February 4 2011, Mahlangu gave Gigaba options on how to deal with Gama’s reinstatement.

Evidence leader for the inquiry, Anton Myburgh, said when new e-mails emerged, one’s memory could be triggered to remember what happened.

Another situation would be the one Mahlangu adopted; that even after seeing the e-mails, he could not recall the events noted in the e-mails.

Myburgh said Mahlangu’s initial statement — that at the time of Gama’s reinstatement, Mahlangu was still familiarising himself with his new work environment — was incorrect when contrasted with the two e-mails.

Mahlangu agreed.

“In fact what the e-mails show, albeit you have no independent recollection, is that you have had a series of discussions with Mr Mkhwanazi, you had reported on those discussions to your boss and in fact you had given your boss advice,” Myburgh asked.

Mahlangu agreed.
