Speaking to Tim Modise on Power FM this morning, the PRASA boss said that they are taking the matter serious following a tip off they received from ‘someone’ who attended the meeting where his life was apparently discussed.
“I received a report from a source who had sat in a meeting, that meeting reported to be a meeting of MKMVA and I was informed that in that meeting my life was discussed. The need for me to be removed,” said Molefe, former NW Province Premier.
This comes after reports on several newspapers on Thursday morning including Sowetan that Molefe has opened a case against two of the veterans who are also said to be in the SA Police Service crime intelligence unit.
According to Sowetan, Molefe said a tender worth millions of Rand at Prasa is the centre of this feud with the ousted group chief executive Lucky Montana.
Molefe said he was reluctant at first to take the information to the police because he wanted to know if there were people in that meeting who would testify on the allegations under oath.
“So I am therefore at a point where I had to report it, I’m also at a point where I have to take it seriously. To the extent of providing security around myself and my family.”
He said that he also received reports that there were, at some point, people who wanted to gain entry into his private residence with one of them claiming to have had an appointment him.
“And of course we have seen suspicious cars hanging around in the street for a while. We therefore take this matter seriously.”
Molefe, who was the chairman at Petrosa left under a cloud following disagreements with other board members.
The contentious issue is tenders which former chief executive Lucky Montana allegedly signed off without the approval of the board.
On the other hand, Satawu has demanded the removal of Molefe from his position. They threatened to embark on a labour strike if that did not happen.
At the time of publishing no comment was obtained from Prasa communication team.
