Arccoding to the court, It is believed that Sithole and two of his deputies ( Lieutenant General Francinah Ntombenhle Vuma and Divisional Commissioner Leonard Tsumane )

Prior to the African National Congress's elective conference at Nasrec in December, it is alleged that Police Commissioner Sithole attempted to defraud the South African Police Services Intelligence secret fund of R45 million; to assist with the funding of the ANC conference.

In a letter addressed to Sithole on Friday 12 February 2021, from his boss Minister Bheki Cele; he wanted answers within 24 hours. This is after the judgment by the Pretoria High Court on 13 January 2021. Sithole was attempting to procure the gabber from a company called iview for R 45 million; wheels the same device can be obtained on the open market for between R 7 million and R 10 million. 

Due to the “urgency and seriousness” of the matter, Cele told Sitole, “I herewith direct that you provide me with a full report on all I-View matters and the implications to the SAPS, including your own involvement and all other senior officers who were cited in the High Court judgment.”
