Gigaba has no knowledge of meeting between Dames and Guptas.

Home affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba says he did not know about a meeting between former Eskom CEO Brian Dames and the Guptas in Midrand Gauteng.

Gigaba had been testifying and answering questions before Parliament’s state capture inquiry, and says he first heard of the meeting when Dames presented his testimony to the commission of inquiry.

In October 2017, Dames testified that Minister Gigaba's advisor had arranged a meeting with a Gupta representative.

Gigaba also denied he knew of any plans to build a coal power station in the Free State. He says he is hopeful that his testimony will vindicate him and prove he worked ethically.
