Reading Time: < 1 minute

The NPA says it has taken a decision not to prosecute ANC secretary-general Fikile Mbalula regarding the Public Prosecutor’s 2019 report that recommended it look into allegations that Sedgars Sports funded the Mbalula family holiday to Dubai.

The holiday took place between December 2016 and January 2017. Mbalula was Sports Minister at the time. The Public Protector wanted the NPA to probe whether the trip was proceeds of money laundering.

NPA spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana, “After police investigations, guided by the prosecutors in the Pretoria SCCU office, and the DPP office, a decision to decline to prosecute anyone in this matter was taken, as there is no evidence supporting allegations of criminal activity.”
