How did he imagine this would not be picked up?
Was it out of hope? Intransigence? Naivety?
BW #Nene could legitimately say - 'The Guptas are just interested stakeholders, what harm can accrue from me meeting them for tea?'
This we can accept even if the visits were at Saxonwold
And yet PSC he still met with them. Why? #NhlanhlaNene
But guess what - he still meets them in 2014. Why?
But now we hear these were far deeper than that. He had more visits to the Guptas than Maseko; Jonas & Mentor - combined!
So Van Rooyen had to go. And he did.
When #Nene returned to Church Street this year, his proximity to the Guptas was unknown.
