Tomorrow, 14 September 2018, DA Chief Whip, John Steenhuisen MP, will lay criminal charges against ANC MP, Vincent Smith; ANC National Chairperson, Gwede Mantashe; Minister of Communications, Nomvula Mokonyane; former SAA Chairperson, Dudu Myeni; Deputy Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Thabang Makwetla; and others.
Criminal charges, in terms of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act (Act 12 of 2004), relate to reports that they unduly accepted security upgrades to their homes from controversial facilities management company Bosasa.
For too long under the ANC national government, corruption and excessive expenditure, in return for favours, has been allowed to flourish. These allegations must be investigated so we can get to the bottom of who paid for the high-tech security upgrades.
The DA condemns corrupt practices by public representatives and will not hesitate to act and ensure that any allegations are fully investigated and that those found guilty of abusing their office are held to account.
Details of the event are as follows:
