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.
