Gold Fields Mine investigation underway
The Hawks are investigating allegations of impropriety.
JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks have confirmed they're investigating allegations of impropriety surrounding the allocation of mining rights at the Gold Fields' South Deep mine.
This follows an inquiry requested by the DA over allegations of criminal conduct at the mine involving ANC Chairperson, Baleka Mbete.
The opposition party requested for Mbete to be investigated under the Prevention and Combatting of Corrupt Activities Act.
The Hawk's Paul Ramaloko has declined to confirm the investigation involving her, but says the matter is being looked into.
But Ramaloko says a criminal case is yet to be opened.
