Former CEO of rail agency PRASA has applied to give testimony at the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture chaired by Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.
Montana has vowed to demonstrate that those making state capture or corruption allegations are in fact the most corrupt.
He revealed his decision to appear before the Commission via a tweet on Monday morning, Current Affairs ZA learned. He tweeted:
After much reflection and consultation with family, close comrades and friends, I am ready to testify before the Zondo Commission.
Here is my letter notifying the Commission of my intention to make a submission and to testify in August 2019.Former PRASA CEO Lucky Montana
In his letter to the Commission, Montana said he intends to address the origins of the crisis at PRASA.
He will also shed light on governance issues and his decision to resign in March 2015, he added.
The former CEO said he’ll also reveal the “role of the African National Congress and some of its leaders.”
I will also demonstrate that those making allegations of state capture or corruption are in fact the most corrupt. PRASA was never captured by any of the forces during my tenure.Former PRASA CEO Lucky Montana
Montana emphasised that while he has not been implicated by anyone, he believes his evidence could be of use to the Commission.
He said he was available to appear at the Commission from mid-August 2019.
