Bribing Tokyo

The Iraqi Oil bribe scandal hit South Africa, but I don't think anyone is really paying it any attention. Tokyo Sexwale, named in the scandal, is a big wig in the ANC. He left the government to enter the more lucrative private sector a while back, and if the Iraqis were bribing him for political influence, they were pretty clueless as regards South African politics. President Mbeki stance on the Iraq war has been consistent (against), and I doubt Tokyo has much clout that high up.

If it can be shown he gave some of that money to the ANC it would be another story, but otherwise I think the opinion will be "So what?". Still, I look forward to seeing how this will pan out.
