Cape Town – A “video call” between South African political analyst puppet Chester Missing and African National Congress (ANC) chairperson and Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe will leave you in stitches.
Chester took to Twitter to poke fun at Mantashe for his implication in the State Capture report.
“Zondo report says he’s got security upgrades at his home from Bosasa. You’ve got feel for this guy. Jacob Zuma got R220 million worth of security upgrades and the entire ANC defended him. Gwede Mantashe got a spy camera at his house and they’ve thrown him under the bus.
“All he got is something he can buy on the internet for R200 and it is from Bosasa. It’s a bribe. The stuff at Gwede Mantashe’s house is to stop crime, and it is itself a crime. It’s unbelievable it’s like making a PPE out of Covid,” joked Chester.
Chester then pretended to be calling Gwede to ask him how he is feeling. He used a clip where Mantashe was addressing the media on the Zondo Commission report’s findings against him.
“Hey uncle Gwizzy are you ohk,” asked Chester.
“Not as a Minister, that’s why I’m emphasising that I’m the chairperson of the ANC,” Mantashe “responded”.

According to Times Live, Mantashe was fingered by the State Capture Inquiry for having gained from Bosasa-sponsored security upgrades at three of his properties, a fact he has not denied, but insists were paid for by family friend Papa Leshabane, who was a director of the controversial company at the time.
Bosasa, which is now known as African Global Operations was found to have used fronts to get kickbacks in exchange for lucrative government contracts by the State Capture Inquiry, according to EWN.
Furthermore, it extensively bribed politicians, government officials, and others.
