State capture inquiry: Joburg mayor, Geoff Makhubo denies wrongdoing

Geoff Makhubo

Johannesburg mayor Geoff Makhubo got over R35-million from business dealings with Regiments, who had a contract with the very city in which he was Finance MMC.

Whether or not this in fact constitutes a conflict of interest was the focal point at the state capture inquiry.

The Zondo Commission heard that his company Molelwane Consulting was in business with the City of Johannesburg.

The mayor, however, insists there is no conflict of interest.

Makhubo told the commission that he could not give up his 67 percent shares at the company despite being a public servant.
