SABC News Mathane Makgathojpg - Makgatho says ‘toxic environment’ at Transnet caused her to resign

Former Transnet Group Treasurer Mathane Makgatho has told the State Capture Commission in Johannesburg that she resigned from Transnet because she felt the toxic environment at the State-owned Enterprise was beginning to take a toll on her health.

Makgatho says she was also afraid that she would be physically harmed because she was told there were meetings in which she was described as a stumbling block.

She says Transnet CEO Brian Molefe seemed to consider her as troublesome.

Makgatho says the Chinese loan agreement that was approved by the Transnet board – after she resigned – was also based on a number of misrepresentations.

Earlier, she told the State Capture Inquiry that she regrets agreeing to travel back from China to South Africa with a mysterious suitcase that belonged to former Transnet Chief Financial Officer, Anoj Singh.

She says she made the trip at his request after Singh held a meeting with a Chinese official during a trip to negotiate the terms of a Transnet loan.
