The commission set up to investigate the disappearance of the R500000 donated to the SA Communist Party (SACP) has not interviewed SA Democratic Teachers Union (Sadtu) president Willie Madisha or his witness, Madisha told the union's general council yesterday.
"I've taken leave as the president of Cosatu to allow the investigation to continue without my interference and I'm waiting to be called," Madisha said.
"I will come running should the commission call me. I doubt it because I'm told the commission has completed its task."
He said state machinery such as the police were used against the leaders of the alliance.
"I will prove that state machinery has been used - affidavits I submitted to the police and those from my witness have been accessed by the media."
He said his witness was being harassed and threatened after the affidavits were made public in the media.
A commission was set up to investigate the whereabouts of the R500000 donated to the SACP by businessman Charles Modise.
The money was allegedly transported in Madisha's car to SACP general-secretary Blade Nzimande. Nzimande has denied receiving it.
Madisha said he had been instructed not to talk about the issue and was speaking because he was addressing a Sadtu meeting.
An emotionally-charged Madisha said that never before had it happened in the history of the ANC and the alliance that leaders plotted, lied and planned to kill because of the ANC's national conference. - Sapa
