Malatsi to take the witness stand today

By Lunga Guza

Former Western Cape MEC of Environment Affairs, Divide Malatsi, will today testify at the Bellville Regional Court on alleged charges of fraud and corruption. The case was postponed from yesterday after Malatsi’s defence council wanted time to prepare his client to take the witness stand. SABCnews.com report that Malatsi and the former Western Cape premier, Peter Marais, are accused of what the state call “accepting bribes” for the approval of the Roodefontein golf estate in Plattenberg Bay. Reports unveil that an R 400 thousand donation was offered to the New National Party (NNP) in 2002 by an Italian developer, Riccardo Agusta for approval of the golf estate.
