South Africa: The Arrest of Buffalo City Mayor and Other Senior Leaders

press release

The African National Congress has noted the serious allegations of money laundering and fraud on which the Mayor of Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality, her deputy, senior officials of the Municipality and the ANC Regional Secretary were arrested and charged today.

Corruption is a cancer that has no place in the ANC and our society. The ANC will thus monitor the unfolding legal processes closely.
