RDP fraud exposed

As RDP fraud flourishes in our municipalities, the beneficiaries continue to suffer in object poverty while corrupt officials sell off free government housing. This arrest by the hawks is one win for the little guys.

Human Settlements MEC, Ms. Norah Mahlangu has welcomed the arrest of an official from the Steve Tswete Local Municipality in Middelburg, Mpumalanga. Ms. Sylvia Nyandeni (43) was arrested by the Hawks recently on 40 counts of fraud. It is alleged that she presented herself to the complainants having authority to receive monies for RDP houses. The supposed houses were to be built at Rockdale. “We would like to warn those who are involved in such unscrupulous activities that the net is slowly closing in on them”, charged MEC Mahlangu. Nyandeni and her accomplice will appear again in court on 20 August 2020.
