CAPE TOWN – Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor blew the lid on alleged cabinet job offers by the Gupta family.
She claimed on March 14 that the controversial family had offered her the public enterprises minister&39;s post.
Since then she has kept a low profile while other prominent people have made similar allegations.
In her first television interview, Mentor tells eNCA why she&39;s spoken out.
Mentor is adhering to her statement that the Gupta family are using their influence and attempting to hand-pick leaders for positions in the government and state-owned enterprises.
She says she is still considering whether to lodge a formal complaint about the alleged Gupta job offer in cabinet.
"I&39;m still considering this, but in the past two years I have been to the office of the SGO (ANC secretary general Gwede Mantashe&39;s office) without invitation ... So with our without an invitation, whether it&39;s necessary for me to go to the SGO&39;s office or to Luthuli House, (as) I often do. And I will do so in the future. But this one, I am (still) considering."
The former ANC MP says she&39;s not turned against her party, but will continue to speak out in the best interests of the country.
