President rebuffs claims of interference in Ndebele case

Monday, March 27, 2017

Pretoria – The Presidency has refuted allegations in Sunday’s City Press that President Jacob Zuma had asked for intervention in the corruption case faced by the former Minister of Transport, S'bu Ndebele.

The Presidency on Sunday said the allegations are “totally false and without foundation”.

“The President has no knowledge of the said intervention. The alleged involvement of the President is a total fabrication by City Press,” said the Presidency in a statement.

According to media reports, Ndebele is accused of accepting a massive bribe in exchange for fixing tenders at the Department of Transport. Ndebele offered to resign from his position as high commissioner to Australia. He is now back in the country to face the charges against him. – SAnews.gov.za
