The Hawks have confirmed that allegations that North West Premier, Supra Mahumapelo has given former President Jacob Zuma a gift of cattle worth R1.5 million, have been brought to their attention.
According to the allegations, four cows and a bull, which were intended to be given to emerging farmers in the North West were instead allegedly delivered to Zuma’s residence in Nkandla in October 2016.
This week there were calls that Mahumapelo should resigns as the premier, accusing him of corruption
“This matter was brought to our attention, and as we said, we are assessing the allegations. As it is now, we are still at an early stage to be able to give concrete information on it. But what we would want is the situation where we would be given a space to do our work. Thereafter, we will be able to give more information, but for now we are not in a position to get into details,” said Hawks Spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi.
