M&G Hangout: Gold Fields’s Mbete ‘bribe’

Sign up here to receive newsletters about our future hangouts.

Last week the Mail & Guardian revealed how mining giant Gold Fields buried a New York law firm's finding that a R25-million share allocation to ANC chairperson Baleka Mbete constituted bribery.

This week, we bring you more from the damning investigation, as well as new details surrounding the murky deal. 

We'll be talking to Craig McKune, one of the journalists covering the story, in our M&G Hangout on Friday at 10am. McKune will also be taking your questions about the saga and explain the details. 

You can also post your questions in the comment section below, or on FacebookGoogle+ or Twitter using the tag #MGhangout


Why was Kenny Kunene and his fellow ex-convict Gayton McKenzie involved in structuring the deal? Are mining sector opportunities being abused to extend patronage to a small elite? Send us whatever questions and comments you have about the Gold Fields deal involving Mbete.

You can also watch the video on our Google+ page.
