Sexwale, Zuma and the suspect DRC oil deals

The Mail & Guardian has linked Tokyo Sexwale, the minister of human settlements, with two oil companies fronted by Khulubuse Zuma, nephew to the President. Those would be the same two oil companies that unexpectedly netted two potentially lucrative oil exploration blocks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, at the expense of two more established oil companies that had considered the blocks locked up. "President Zuma's ethical conundrum is that his relative looks set to benefit from the kind of commercial smash-and-grab that is swayed as much by diplomatic consideration as financial sense," the M&G says.
