Orange prison garb awaits former general manager of municipality who stole R230,000 for next 6 years after convicted of fraud and corruption

The manager of the (Mangaung) larger Bloemfontein municipality, Lehlohonolo Nakedi, has to report to the Bloemfontein Correctional Facility today to serve 10 years in prison.

Nakedi was found guilty in 2013 of corruption, fraud and money laundering. His fight to escape prison was finally ended when the Constitutional Court dismissed his appeal.

He will serve two sentences of 10 and 8 years at a time, but opinionists believe he should have been behind bars six years ago, so that he should not be granted access to further court cases.

SAPS rotten with corruption, even members in top ranks are criminals and offenders – Former police commissioner arrested on charges of fraud

Khomotso Phahlane, the former acting police commissioner, appeared in the specialized trade crime court in Johannesburg.

He and police chief of supply management, Ravichandran Pillay, were arrested on fraud charges.

They therefore stand with former Gauteng police commissioner Deliwede Lange and officials Vimpie Phineas Manthata, Ramahlapi Johannes Mokwena, James Ramanjalum and Nombhuruza Napo on charges of alleged fraud of more than R80 million.

Phahlane dismisses the case as attempts by Robert McBride and OPOD to improve McBride’s image while McBride himself is accused of corruption.

Biggest technical training university in SA is on the verge of collapse due to chaos and corruption

The Minister of Education and Authorities was asked to investigate allegations of fraud, death threats, corruption and nepotism at the Vaal University of Technology (VUT).

VUT is currently one of the largest technical training universities in the country with 20,000 students.

Allegations of conflict between high-ranking officials have long been made in press reports.

According to reports, the institution is on the verge of collapse due to large-scale financial plundering. The previous Vice-Chancellor, Mpho Diago, resigned this week amid death threats over his alleged “whistle-blowing” around corruption and mismanagement.

Whistle-blower Agrizzi arrested on corruption charges, but big fish like not Watson, Dudu Myeni, Nomvula Mokonyane, Gwede Mantashe are still as free as birds

Shortly after evidence were giving during the Bosasa debacle, the Hawks struck and arrested five people including Agrizzi and Van Tonder who acts as witnesses for Watson’s large-scale fraud and bribery actions.

The question now arises why Watson, Dudu Myeni, Nomvula Mokonyane, Gwede Mantashe and the rest of the crooks were not arrested? It is after all they who provided and received the money for the millions of contracts. Is there a snake in the grass somewhere here?

Is R500,000 enough to buy immunity from prosecution? Brigadier Mulaudzi of the Hawks denies any political fuss and there would be evidence that politicians were involved in illegal activities there against them. Observers point out that the investigation into Bosasa was already completed in 2009 and the fact that the Hawks are only now showing irregularities in the legal process.

Some very expensive toilets I say! – Mayor of eThekwini in Hawks vision for allegations of money laundering, fraud and corruption after more than R25 million was spent on the rent and cleaning of chemical toilets

It’s only a matter of time before the investigation unit descends to clean up the metro, which is pervaded by fraud, money laundering and corruption.

eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede and senior ANC councillor in the metro Mondli Mthembu face the possibility of arrest by the Hawks after the completion of a lengthy investigation into allegations of money laundering, fraud and corruption against them.

Following the arrest of three municipal officials on charges of fraud and theft early last week, City Press can today reveal that the Hawks have shifted their focus to Gumede and Mthembu and are ready to pounce on the two.

Two high-ranking police officials close to the investigation told City Press last week that Gumede and Mthembu’s arrest “is not a matter of if, but a matter of when”.

A senior Hawks official directly involved with the investigation said “the docket has been opened and I have seen it. The investigation has been complet
