The African National Congress (ANC) has taken legal action by opening a case of crimen injuria related to UIF fraud alleged by Mthunzi Mdwaba, who has publicly accused the ANC’s top leadership of soliciting a R500 million bribe.
EWN reports that in a recent interview with Sunday World, Mdwaba disclosed that his company, Thuja Capital, was on the verge of finalising a significant R500 billion employment project with the UIF. However, he claimed the deal fell apart because he refused to pay kickbacks to key ANC figures, including Secretary General Fikile Mbalula, Minister of Finance Enoch Godongwana, Minister of Labour and Employment Thulas Nxesi, and Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande.
Mbalula, responding to the allegations, visited Sandton Police Station to initiate the legal proceedings against Mdwaba. He asserted that the accusations tarnished his reputation and challenged the ruling party’s credibility.
Mbalula stated that he had never engaged with Mdwaba previously or discussed any UIF deal with anyone since assuming office. He stressed his lack of knowledge and mentioned that the allegations surfaced without prior contact or communication.
