The commission into state capture, headed by chief justice Raymond Zondo, has recommended that President Cyril Ramaphosa consider the position of Zizi Kodwa as deputy minister of state security because of his tainted relationship with controversial businessman and former EOH boss Jehan Mackay.

“The commission accordingly recommends that the president considers the position of Mr Kodwa as deputy minister of state security having regard to the fact that Mr Kodwa appears to find himself in a position where he is beholden by Mr Jehan Mackay,” reads the report.

“Mr Kodwa is beholden by Mr Jehan Mackay to whom he owes more than R1.7m. On his own version, this is a debt which he cannot immediately repay.” The commission also recommended law enforcement agencies investigate attempts by Mackay to induce Kodwa to interfere with procurement processes in the interest of EOH.

“Mr Kodwa is beholden by Mr Jehan Mackay to whom he owes more than R1.7m. Kodwa is said to have been"beholden" to former EOH executive Jehan Mackay The commission says Mackay should be subject to multiple criminal investigations. On his own version, this is a debt which he cannot immediately repay. The State Capture Inquiry has recommended that President Cyril Ramaphosa consider the position of Zizi Kodwa as Deputy Minister of State Security following his implication in questionable transactions between himself and Jehan Mackay, a former director at technology group EOH.”  The commission also recommended law enforcement agencies investigate attempts by Mackay to induce Kodwa to interfere with procurement processes in the interest of EOH. The report points to a beneficial relationship involving personal loans made to him by Mackay and an apparent attempt to buy his influence in the awarding of tenders. If its recommendations are implemented, Mackay would be subject to multiple criminal investigations. The first volume dealt with the attempted capture of National Treasury, among others, and saw Zondo recommend that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) consider instituting bribery or corruption charges against Tony Gupta.

Mr Kodwa is beholden by Mr Jehan Mackay to who he owes more than R1.6 million to Kodwa and another R30 000 for his benefit.6 million to Kodwa and another R30 000 for his benefit.7m. On his own version, this is a debt which he cannot immediately repay Zondo report The commission said though it had not seen evidence to show impropriety on the part of Kodwa in relation to attempts by Mackay to induce him to interfere with procurement processes in the interest of EOH, due to time constraints it could not independently investigate if Kodwa may or may have not done anything to influence the awarding of tenders. From luxury accommodation to loans and other gratuities, Kodwa is found to have been"beholden" to Mackay, the former executive director of EOH Mthombo, a subsidiary of EOH.  “It would not be difficult for an influential or important figure in a political party that is the majority party in the municipality to influence either officials within the municipality or councillors of such municipality to influence relevant officials within the municipality,” the report reads. The inquiry, headed by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, has recommended that"the president considers [sic] the position of Kodwa, as Deputy Minister of State Security," given that he"appears to find himself in a position where he is beholden to Mackay".  The commission commended EOH for being co-operative and said theirs was a unique case.

Zuma and Hlongwane both denied any wrongdoing.

“Alone among all the companies that have been mentioned in the proceedings of the commission, EOH proactively approached the commission to be given the opportunity to disclose publicly what wrongdoing had taken place historically within its ranks. It sought also to explain what it has already done and what it proposes to do to make reparation for such wrongdoing and to prevent similar wrongdoing occurring within its ranks in the future.

Mackay himself is among a group of former executives that EOH is pursuing in a bid to recoup some of the monies lost to the group to corrupt activities. EOH has committed itself to making the results of these investigations public and to assisting regulatory and law enforcement authorities with their investigations into matters that have been revealed by the ENS forensics investigations. The company has issued summons to former executives in a bid to recoup a combined amount of R6.

” The report said the primary credit for the attitude taken by EOH must be accorded to Van Coller because when he was appointed in 2018 he was aware of adverse media reports relating to EOH.4 billion. “His response to these reports was not to seek to negate them, but rather to investigate to establish whether they were substantiated. When it became clear that there was substance to several of these reports he put in place a wide range of measures.
