Rasool rejects inquiry into Kebble donations
By Tando Mfengwana
Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool says that he does not support the establishment of a judicial commission of inquiry into donations received by the African National Congress from slain mining mogul, Brett Kebble.
Rasool said that the province has never given gifts or any favours to Kebble, when he was responding to questions from the Democratic Alliance in the Western Cape legislature. But, the ANC has never denied receiving money from Kebble.
Forensic auditors found that Kebble had given R25 million to the ANC, that included R5. 7 million as a donation to the party in the Western Cape.
Ebrahim said that he would not want to yield whether the money would be returned or not by the ANC, he said this should be determined by the legitimacy of the donations.
