DA to file corruption charges against Deputy President Paul Mashatile in Cape Town

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has announced its intention to lay criminal charges of corruption against Deputy President Paul Mashatile.

The charges are set to be filed at the Cape Town Central Police Station in Western Cape, following media reports implicating Mashatile in alleged corruption during his tenure as the MEC for human settlements in Gauteng.

The DA had previously submitted a dossier containing corruption allegations to President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier this month, urging the removal of Mashatile from the cabinet.

DA’s Solly Msimanga claims that the matter was brought to the Presidency because of the President’s authority to appoint the deputy president.

Party leader John Steenhuisen has underscored the need for action, citing investigative journalism reports detailing extensive corruption and state capture by Mashatile over nearly two decades.
