Ex KZN police boss expected to hand herself over to authorities over World Cup tender corruption



Following investigations into corrupt practices relating to the multi-million 2010 FIFA World Cup corruption tender, former KwaZulu-Natal police boss Mmamonnye Ngobeni and a police captain are expected to hand themselves over to authorities on Monday.

After the two refused to appear in court on Friday, Hawks was granted the warrant to arrest the pair.

The duo are facing the charges of fraud and corruption in connection to a R47 million tender.

This tender is related to police accommodation during the FIFA World Cup which held in South Africa in 2010.

According to Hawks officials, Ngobeni faces three counts of corruption related to bribes.

She was accused of allegedly receiving bribe for ordering former Hawks boss Johan Booysen to stop investigating the R47 million fraudulent police accommodation scheme.

NPA spokesperson Sipho Ngwema said:

“Indeed, the Investigating Directorate has two outstanding warrants of arrest, one for a police captain and a former police commissioner in KZN. ”

“This is in connection with R47 million corruption matter which is connected to the 2010 world cup activities in the province,” said NPA spokesperson Sipho Ngwema.
