The Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has said that he wants political leaders and elected officials to tell him what action they took against alleged corruption at some state-owned enterprises (SOEs).

Zondo said this on Monday when the commission resumed its proceedings with the former chairperson of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) Popo Molefe returning to the witness stand.

Molefe told Zondo that at some point during his tenure as Prasa chair, he had briefed the governing African National Congress (ANC) top six leadership on the board’s investigations that revealed “massive corruption” at the SOE and how the entity’s former CEO, Lucky Montana, had misled it so an irregular tender would be issued.

Molefe said the tender was eventually halted after the board learned that it had been misled.

The former Prasa board chair said the party’s top six, however, did not come back to him on what action would be taken against these acts of corruption.

He told Zondo that a campaign run in the media and involving mass mobilisation and vilification of the board was launched, aimed at bringing an end to the board’s investigations.

Zondo said the party’s leadership and elected government officials would have to testify at the commission and explain the action they took against publicly known acts of corruption in some SOEs.
