ACCOUNTABILITY AT THE HEART OF TRUST
The former EOH executive, Jehan Mackay, is at the epicenter of corruption allegations involving multiple payments to senior ANC members, including Zizi Kodwa, Siyabulela Sintwa and Geoff Makhubo.
In an investigation by ENSafrica, evidence introduced to the judicial commission of the state capture inquiry showed that Mackay made various suspicious payments from his personal FNB account to Zizi Kodwa – who currently serves as the deputy minister of state security.
Suspicious payments were also traced to former President, Jacob Zuma’s personal assistant, Siyabulela Sintwa.
According to ENSafrica investigators, it is alleged that Mackay made these payments as a “favours” to win government contacts for his IT company, EOH.
The evidence presented by investigators shows payments made from 26 May 2015 to 29 June 2018.
A total of R295 000 was sent to Zizi Kodwa, and R291 600 was sent to Sintwa. In the same bank statement, R500 000 was made to a “Mr Nkbinde” – whom the investigators believe is Reggie Nkabinde, former treasurer of the ANC Youth League.
During today’s state capture inquiry hearing, the EOH executive was also asked to furnish details of contracts and transactions linked to Johannesburg Mayor, Geoff Makhubo.

It’s probably just another payment from a friend. #StateCaptureInquiry
