In reaction to a recent report about Deputy president Paul Mashatile, the well-known Twitter blogger Goolam has come out to share his thoughts. According to Goolam, “Paul Mashatile is corrupt to the core. He must never be allowed to ascend to the highest office. It is also no secret that his deputy president will be the evil Julius Malema. Mashatile is bad news”.
As per report, Two close associates of Deputy President Paul Mashatile are set to benefit from multibillion-rand government contracts. Bridgman Sithole, one of Mashatile’s oldest and closest friends, is a director of a company that has been awarded a major energy contract from the government. The contract is worth billions of rands and is expected to generate significant profits for Sithole’s company over the next two decades.
Another associate of Mashatile, Robinson Ramaite, could also benefit from a government contract. Ramaite’s companies have previously received contracts from the Gauteng provincial government, and he is now in line to receive a contract for a major housing project east of Pretoria. The project is worth hundreds of millions of rands, and Ramaite’s companies could pocket a significant share of the profits.
The awarding of these contracts to Mashatile’s friends has raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest. Mashatile is the Minister of Finance in the South African government, and he is responsible for overseeing the awarding of government contracts. Some critics have argued that Mashatile’s close personal relationships with Sithole and Ramaite could give them an unfair advantage in bidding for government contracts.
In response to these concerns, Mashatile has denied any wrongdoing. He has said that the awarding of these contracts was done fairly and that there was no conflict of interest.
