Mapisa-Nqakula’s Home Raided by Hawks Amid Corruption Allegations




The details of corruption against Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula were brought to Parliament, but went on to declare her as clean of any crime. The Gauteng Hawks, wearing the NPA’s Investigative Directorate’s uniform, conducted search and seizure operations at her house in Bruma, according to IOL.

These developments follow allegations that she received $10 million (R200 million) in bribes while she served as defence minister between 2012 and 2021, which she vehemently denies. According to reports, Mapisa-Nqakula is said to have received over R2.3 million in cash from a defence department contractor.

The ID’s final report investigation into Mapisa-Nqakula has been concluded; however, Hawks and NPA representatives have not yet made any statements. The operation, which took five hours, involved the Speaker’s cooperation and innocence, as stated in a Parliament-approved statement.

The events of Tuesday blocked Ms. Mapisa-Nqakula’s work in the House of Assembly, including her participation in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Q&A session. Although there are allegations, Parliament asserts that Mapisa-Nqakula remains a trusted public servant with high integrity and honour, and the council opposes corruption as a danger to democracy and the proper system.
