Zizi Kodwa Denies Involvement In Controversial Voice Note Criticising ANC

Last week, Zizi Kodwa resigned from his position as Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture, and as a member of the Cabinet, following his arrest on charges of corruption and bribery.

The embattled former Minister of Arts and Culture, Zizi Kodwa, has vehemently denied any involvement in a circulating voice note that criticizes the African National Congress (ANC).

The voice note, which has gone viral, features a man making serious allegations against the ANC, including claims that the party favours white business owners over radical left-wing factions.

Social media users, particularly on the platform X, have been speculating that the voice belongs to Kodwa. These claims have been met with strong rebuttals from the former minister.

Zizi Kodwa has publicly requested the public to cease sharing the voice note, labeling it as ‘destructive mischief.’ He stated, “I have taken note of a voice note remarking on the South African currency and economy that is circulating and purports to be mine.

“This voice note is fake. It is a distorted message which deliberately attempts to drive a wedge amongst comrades.”

Kodwa emphasized the importance of unity and focus during this critical time, distancing himself entirely from the voice note. He urged comrades and the public to stop sharing the note and not to give it any credibility.

Last week, Zizi Kodwa resigned from his position as Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture, and as a member of the Cabinet, following his arrest on charges of corruption and bribery.

He and his co-accused, former EOH Holdings Director Jehan Mackay, were granted bail of R30,000 and are expected to appear in court next month. The arrests are connected to the findings of the Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture.

It was found that between April 2015 and February 2018, Mackay allegedly paid bribes amounting to R1.6 million to Kodwa. The bribes were reportedly used to purchase a luxury SUV and accommodation.

These payments supposedly influenced the cancellation of a R360 million tender, benefiting Mackay, EOH, and Tactical Software Systems (TSS). Kodwa has denied all allegations and claims that the payments were made during financial hardships.
