DA to lay criminal charges against Bathabile Dlamini following CPS corruption revelations

Tomorrow, 14 June 2019, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Shadow Minister of Social Development, Bridget Masango MP, will lay criminal charges against former Minister Bathabile Dlamini following her failure to report her knowledge that wives of ANC members were allegedly involved in dubious relationships with Cash Paymaster Services (CPS).

The DA gave Dlamini 48 hours to report to the police the alleged corruption she claimed to be aware of in her resignation letter. In terms of Section 34 of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act, any person who suspects or knows of another person who has committed corruption but fails to report the crime to the police, is committing a criminal offence.

Dlamini has for far too long gotten away with evading accountability and the DA will ensure that she along with her ANC cronies get their day in court.

Details are as follows

Date: Friday, 14 June 2019

Time: 10:30 am

Venue: Cape Town Central Police Station

Address: 28 Buitenkant St, Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town, 8000
