Johannesburg - The Hawks briefly detained ANC Youth League Limpopo secretary Jacob Lebogo as part of its probe into multi-million rand tender irregularities, according to a report on Sunday.

Lebogo was detained for questioning in September after he was found with about R2m in cash on him, the Sunday Independent reported.

His brief detention was part of a province-wide investigation into tender corruption, fraud and money laundering in Limpopo which was believed to have benefitted African National Congress Youth League president Julius Malema and his close allies.

The Hawks would decide later whether to press charges against Lebogo or not, the newspaper said.

Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela refused to comment on the matter.
