Manyi attended banks meeting as ‘part-time adviser’ to mines minister

Manyi’s response comes after executives of the affected banks told the commission in September that they were summoned to Zwane’s interministerial committee to account for the closure of the Gupta-linked accounts. 

“I actually attended the meeting at the directive of the minister. I was the part-time adviser to the minister,” Manyi said. “I am not the spokesperson of the IMC, I have no mandate to speak on it … the fact that I attend cabinet meetings does not give me a right to explain to people what happened in cabinet.”

Pressed by deputy chief justice Raymond Zondo for a response, Manyi said the meetings had a “very good decorum”.

“The meeting had a very good decorum, there was no screaming at anyone. The details are contained in the minutes of the meeting.”
