President Cyril Ramaphosa published a report by the South African Special Investigation Unit, which claimed that former Health Minister Zweli Mkhize had lied when he claimed that he and his family had benefitted from a multi-million-pound tender to distribute information about the Government's efforts to combat COVID-19.
The Mail & Guardian reported on the controversial relationship between the Eastern Cape businessman Lonwabo Bam and Mbizana Municipal and former Human Settlements (MEC) boss Babalo Madikizela, the Head of Public Works for the Mabuyane Bentley renovation contract, and the money Bam received.
Devastating findings in a report by the Office of Public Protector concluded that the government of the Eastern Cape misused 33 million rupees in April 2018 in collaboration with the local community of MBizana to commemorate and other celebrations in honor of the late fighter icon Winnie Madikizela Mandela. Mandela was born and raised in Bizana, which is part of the community.
ANC leader, Prime Minister and candidate Oscar Mabuyane and party treasurer Babalo Madikizela, considered an ally of Cyril Ramaphosa, are accused of profiting from payments by businessman Lonwabo Bam to Thembizana, the local community where he settles and hires businesses for the Mthombeni project and not doing the work for which he was paid.
The prosecution's investigation is based on affidavits by Bam revealing how the money he received was paid into his business account and how the city administrator of Mbizana, Luvuyo Malaka, paid money for the project owned by Bam on behalf of the former Human Settlements MEC, the head of public works baba lo madikizela. According to reports in Sowetan, Robert Gumede is said to be a state prisoner of the African National Congress (ANC), and it is rumored that he has occasionally paid the salaries of city officials such as Mbombela and various donations allocated to him by the ANC.
n December 2017, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa's son Andile signed an advisory mandate against corruption company Bosasa through his blue crane capital company. That resulted in the company getting a monthly withholding fee of 150,000 rupees which was later increased to 230,000 rupees. Furious ANC supporters demanding the resignation of former Health Minister Dr. Zweli Mkhize have sued Digital Vibes for Rs 15.5 million in irregular tenders and arrested Eastern Cape Prime Minister Oscar Mabuyane over an Rs 11 million scandal in which he received Rs 450,000 to renovate his house. This week, The Mail & Guardian reported that R450,000 more than R1 was transferred to a company renovating the ANC provincial chairman and prime minister-designate in the eastern Cape suburb of Bunkers Hill in east London.
