Unread post by Jack Welles » Thu Oct 10, 2019 2:37 pm

Mods, this is a good news story about the NPA - hope it's allowed.

The NPA confirmed that its Asset Forfeiture Unit seized assets belonging to former eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede in Umhlanga this mroning (Thursday 10th). The unit, together with the Hawks and SAPS, obtained a court order for her belongings to be placed under curatorship.

Gumede and several of her co-accused face charges of fraud, corruption and racketeering relating to a 2016 waste collection tender worth over R200 million.

She might also be in violation of her bail conditions as she was not at the address she gave to court during her bail application.

................................and she got off! :shock: :roll: Her lawyer confirmed in court that he was at fault for not communicating her correspondence with him about moving to the investigating officer. Nice cop out, I can't believe anyone really would believe that is the case, but hey, it worked! #-o

Yep. Old ploy if the lawyer is prepared to tell the court that it was his fault. The court doesn't really have an option then. Anyway that was just the bail conditions story. The real trial is still got to be had. She probably isn't a flight risk, which is the real worry when people don't meet their bail conditions.
