South Africa: Two senior Hawks officers arrested for alleged fraud and corruption

Two senior officers from the Hawks and a former officer stationed at the Silverton office aged 48, 55 and 57 were arrested on Tuesday morning for alleged fraud and corruption in relation to promotional appointments in the Directorate for Priority Crimes Investigation.

The Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation members, in their quest to rid the organisation of those members who aren’t willing to be beyond reproach, executed warrants of arrests for the senior officers and the former officer who allegedly misused their power and authority whilst discharging their duties as members of selection panels within the DPCI.

Spokesperson for the Hawks Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi resigned on Monday 9 November 2020. Mulaudzi is at the centre of a scandal whereby the National Lotteries Commission (NLC) allegedly made a R3 million donation to Mulaudzi’s foundation, to go towards the establishment of a sports centre.
