'Mthethwa – a champ in the fight against corruption’
The ANC said the police minister’s willingness to subject himself to a probe must be applauded.
JOHANNESBURG - The ANC on Sunday said it was still convinced allegations of corruption against Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa were groundless and baseless.
Auditor General Terence Nombembe on Friday revealed a report that found that secret service funds were used to pay for a security wall at Mthethwa's private home.
But he found no evidence that the minister was aware of the source of the funding.
Mthethwa requested that the auditor general probe reports that R200, 0000 from a slush fund was used to pay for a wall and Mercedes Benz car for the minister.
ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza said Mthethwa's willingness to subject himself to a probe must be applauded.
Khoza said the auditor general’s report cleared the minister of any wrong-doing and proved he was a “champion” in the fight against corruption.
