Dorothy says the first time she personally delivered a bag to then Minister Mahlobo. She was told it contained R1.5 million. But on subsequent occasions she signed for the money and delivered it and counted it with Mahlobo.

"It’s counted and then put into bags, I was there and I signed for it. From there, we take the money to the house and count it again to ensure it is the money that he was expecting,” Dorothy said.
