For years I’ve suspected that the president was implicated in the arms deal’s corruption scandal. Ducking and diving, the president has clearly had much to hide. Today, however, we have more than conjecture (and an incriminating encrypted fax the DA has been in possession of) to go on. The Sunday Times bravely broke the story that Mbeki received R30 million from the German shipbuilding conglomerate MAN Ferrostaal in return for awarding the SA Navy’s submarine contract to the consortium it led. Apparently Mbeki gave R2 million to Zuma and the rest to the ANC. No wonder the arms deal probe has been a whitewash!
It will be interesting to see how the following weeks unfold.
