On the Eusebius McKaiser show on Friday morning on 702, Minister of International Relations Naledi Pandor said she felt that President Cyril Ramaphosa should “consider” recalling Ambassador to the Netherlands Bruce Koloane.

This follows his admission at the Zondo commission of inquiry into state capture that he pressurised the South African National Defence Force to authorise the hugely controversial landing of an aeroplane by members of the Gupta family at the Waterkloof Airforce Base in 2013. He also admitted to using the names of former president Jacob Zuma, Defence and Military Veterans Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, and former transport minister Ben Martins to force Waterkloof-based Major Thabo Ntshisi and Colonel Christine Anderson to achieve flight clearance for the plane, which was carrying 200 guests destined for a wedding at Sun City.

“It would be good in South Africa if we developed the practice of when we’ve errored in that way that has brought our country into disrepute and ourselves as individuals, that we actually stand up and stand aside,” Pandor told McKaiser.
