Nzimande To File Criminal Complaint Against Mdwaba Over Corruption Allegations

Nzimande is set to file the accusation on Tuesday afternoon, alleging that Mdwaba neglected to report known or suspected corruption to law enforcement.

Blade Mzimande, Minister of Higher Education, Science and Innovation, is planning to file a criminal complaint against businessman Mthunzi Mdwaba, who has accused him and other politicians of corruption.

Mdwaba, the owner of Thuja Holdings, has accused three Cabinet ministers and the ANC secretary-general, Fikile Mbalula, of soliciting an R500 million bribe from him in connection with an arrangement between his company and the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).

Nzimande is set to file the accusation on Tuesday afternoon, alleging that Mdwaba neglected to report known or suspected corruption to law enforcement. Department spokesperson, Ishmael Mnisi, stated, “A failure to report criminality constitutes a criminal offence.

“It is public knowledge that Mr Mthunzi Mdwaba alleges to have personal knowledge of corruption perpetrated by Minister Blade Mzimande, so personal that Mr Mdwaba himself was approached where a solicitation of a bribe was sought in relation to a tender or a contract he was seeking from the Department of Labour.”

This latest development in the ongoing corruption saga has sent shockwaves through the political landscape. The allegations made by Mdwaba are serious and could have far-reaching consequences for those implicated.

Minister Nzimande’s decision to lay a criminal complaint against Mdwaba is a significant move, as it demonstrates his commitment to clearing his name and holding those who make false accusations accountable.

The accusations made by Mdwaba have raised concerns about the integrity of the government and the ANC.

Corruption has long been a problem in South Africa, and these allegations only serve to further erode public trust in the ruling party. It is crucial that these allegations are thoroughly investigated and that those found guilty of corruption face the full force of the law.

However, it is important to remember that these are still allegations at this stage. Both Minister Nzimande and Mdwaba have the right to be heard and to present their evidence. It is up to the relevant authorities to conduct a fair and impartial investigation into the matter and determine the truth.
