Fraud

Housing boss allegedly received R900 000 for a 12 million tender

Corruption can be described as a beast that benefits those in power or in higher places. 

In a fraud and corruption case that was brough before the courts, Eastern Cape Metro housing boss Mvuleni Mapu allegedly received a hefty bribe of R900 000 from business woman Bulelwa Ntanga so that a lucrative contract could be awarded. 

The charges relate to a R900,000 bribe allegedly paid to Mapu in connection with a R12m housing tender for a Wells Estate project awarded to Ntanga’s company in 2014.

It is alleged Ntanga, through her company, paid Mapu the money on January 6 2014, as a gift, while he was still the chair of the allocations committee which recommends which service provider to award tenders to.

But the case did not go as scheduled as it got off to a rocky start. The first witness failed to answer questions set to her by state advocate Wilhelm De Villiers regarding the processes involved in acquiring a tender. 

The case was postponed to November 19.
