Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Herman Lategan, in his letter of September 30, wants to know why former health minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang is still in the cabinet. The answer is simple.
Her husband Mendi Msimang wastreasurer-general of the ANC under former president Thabo Mbeki, a position now occupied by Mathews Phosa.
So as former treasurer-general Mendi Msimang presided over a portfolio that dealt with ANC finances.
It is alleged that some of the proceeds of the rotten arms deal went to ANC coffers via a dubious outfit known as Chancellor House.
Other questionable finances, that make the ANC reject disclosure of party funding, go through Chancellor House. So Mendi Msimang has a lot of dirt on the ANC.
That's why President Kgalema Motlanthe has retained Tshabalala-Msimang in his cabinet.
When Jacob Zuma came in, Phosa promised that Chancellor House finances were going to be probed but retracted that statement quickly and retreated like a poodle with its tail between its legs. Why? Because of the skeletons in Chancellor House's cupboard.
