Harassment ‘worse than during apartheid’

Gordhan said he had a meeting with then-president Jacob Zuma to complain of this harassment, but Zuma had said nothing, besides saying he would discuss the matter with then-police minister Nathi Nhleko.

Gordhan further detailed a meeting he had had with then-ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe, his deputy Jessie Duarte and then-treasurer general of the party Zweli Mkhize, who assured him that this matter would be dealt with politically.

He told the commission that a day after the budget, the 27 questions sent to him were leaked to the media.

“The leaking of the 27 questions showed there was an agenda … clearly there was some orchestration going on,” he said.
