The former state security minister Bongani Bongo has been confirmed as the ANCMP arrested in Cape Town by the Hawks on allegations of bribery and corruption.
Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said that the suspect was currently being processed for court following his arrest this morning.
It has also been confirmed that in a separate matter, nine other people have been arrested in several provinces, including Gauteng, Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape, on charges of corruption.
A tenth is also expected to be arrested on Thursday.
“There is another sweep that we are conducting in different parts of the country, where we are going to be arresting about 10 suspects for corruption. So those are the two main issues that we are dealing with today,” said Mulaudzi.
However the former State Security Minister has been granted R5000 bail.
He will be back in court on 31 January 2020.
