Former DG and current COPE leader under investigation

Well-known Congress of the People leader Lyndall Shope-Mafole is under investigation for an alleged multi-million rand scam.

It is alleged that she poured 30-million-Rands into an initiative, run by her boyfriend that was meant to help schools into the digital age.

The Department of Communications claims that the initiative produced nothing.

A forensic probe has been launched into how the former director-general signed off 29-million-Rands in payments.

The payments include three-and-a-half-million-Rands for a business plan - to an organisation led by her partner, Henry Chasia.

Shope-Mafole is quoted as saying she can account for every cent.

She resigned from her post as DG in the communications department leaving the ANC and joining COPE last year.
