Eastern Cape Premier, Oscar Mabuyane has vehemently denied having any involvement in the embezzlement of R450 000 from the embattled Mbizana Municipality.
As reported by SABC News, at the time Mabuyane was elected as the Premier of Eastern Cape, he had yet to answer to questions around why R450 000, allegedly extracted from R1.1-million that was commissioned from the municipality for no work done, went towards paying for renovations of his home in Bunkers Hill, East London.
Where did Oscar Mabuyane get money to renovate his home?
Earlier in the year, reports came out revealing that, for the most part, corruption and maladministration were the chief contributors to the downfall of the Mbizana Municipality.
A forensic investigation was launched to look into how the municipality found itself under financial administration.
According to reports, Mabuyane had allegedly benefitted from a contract between the municipality and Lonwabo Bam,
