A 29-year-old director and her company based in Groblersdal, Limpopo were summoned to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on 2 March 2023 where she will join the other accused in the case for charges of money laundering.
It is alleged that R51 000-00 was paid to the company account from VBS Mutual Bank by a commission agent and R5000-00 from that payment was transferred to the Elias Motsaledi Municipality mayor.
The municipality allegedly made illegal investments into VBS where the commission agent received monies.
The mayor was arrested in November 2022 for charges relating to VBS.
The Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team served the summons to the suspects on 14 February 2023.
The investigation is continuing.
