Tomorrow, Thursday 29 June, DA National Spokesperson Solly Malatsi MP will lodge a complaint with the Public Protector against Deputy President Paul Mashatile and ANC Secretary General Fikile Mbalula for their role in what can best be described as State Capture 2.0.

While Mashatile has been living a life of luxury in opulent residences owned by individuals who have benefited from state tenders, Mbalula was loaned R3 million by the COO of the National Lotteries Commission – an entity established to assist disadvantaged communities.

These are exactly the kind of incidents that characterized State Capture during the Zuma years where corrupt tender flows funded extravagant lifestyles for high-ranking ANC officials.

The DA will fight vigorously to prevent another direct and systematic assault on our democracy and its institutions.

The details are:
