EASTERN CAPE – Xolelwa Mbusi  (44) a former Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality cashier at NU3 Mdantsane Municipal Rent office and Daluxolo Ndwangu(49) a resident at NU2 Mdantsane appeared at Mdantsane Magistrate court on 10 June 2021 for alleged charges of corruption.

It is alleged that in 2018, Ndwangu after buying a house in Mdantsane NU2 discovered that the house was sold to him with rates debt of R100 000.  He is said to have gone to make an enquiry with the intention of making suitable arrangements.

It is further alleged that during the enquiry, Xolelwa Mbusi informed Ndwangu that the account was handed over to the lawyers but could assist with clearing the account on the system provided Ndwangu paid her an amount of R50 000 of which Ndwangu subdued to the enticement.

It is said that the duo went to the nearest Capitec Bank branch for Ndwangu to transfer the money into Mbusi’s bank account.

It is reported that after some time Ndwangu realised that the account had not been cleared by the official as agreed upon but instead the debt was escalating. Ndwangu is said to have contacted Mbusi who failed to cooperate and at a later stage ended up being unreachable.

Ndwangu lodged a complaint with the East London Serious Corruption Investigation team for probing. On finalisation of the investigations, warrants of arrests were issued for both the alleged Ndwangu and Mbusi hence their arrest on 10 June 2021.

The duo made their appearance at Mdantsane Magistrate Court immediately after the arrest where they got released on R2000 00 bail each and the matter is remanded for 18 August 2021 to set a trial date.
