Several people including, former South African State Security Minister Bongani Bongo, are expected to appear in court today over charges of theft, fraud and corruption. Eyewitness News reports that Bongo, who is facing corruption charges in the Western Cape, has in the past also been linked to kickback allegations relating to a R37 million land deal in Mpumalanga. It is believed that the conveyancers in the deal paid R1.5 million to a company belonging to Bongo’s wife to build them a home and R300,000 towards the purchase of a new BMW X5 for Bongo during the time that he served in the Mpumalanga provincial government.
