Hawks detained ANCYL VIP

2011-11-06 10:20

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.

    The web of lies and deceit start to unravel for Fatboy and his cronies. The trail of illicit gains will light up like a fuse on a roman candle and all the mighty claims to be the saviour of the poor will implode. GO THE HAWKS!!!!!

      I wouldnt believe Sunday independent as a reliable source, last week they sais malema would be arrested on arrival from wedding, what do you know, he still at large.

      @John Oh please John, you're not going on about your stupid little song again, are you?

  • Robbie - 2011-11-06 10:36

    What about the big fat black fish????? Are the hawks so scared of Malema?? The scorpions would of arrested him long time ago. That is why they are banned,cos 80% of our pathetic,corrupt,clueless goverment would of been arrested by now.

  • Andrew - 2011-11-06 10:39

    Who in this country carries R2m cash?? Is there some nefarious deal in progress ? To my mind anyone with that amount of cash is not going to the bank.

      Joe-Moer - 2011-11-06 10:45

      That money is probably being used to fund service delivery protests that paint Zuma in a bad light and Fatboy as the Savior of the poor.

      Abram - 2011-11-10 10:06

    Good Morning to all the pro-JUJU trolls. Does this look like the beginning of the end to you? Is the whole corrupt mess going to unravel in a series of messy corruption and fraud cases. I certainly hope so. Good luck guys, you are going to look great in orange overalls.

      notbuyingface - 2011-11-06 11:14

      Ya, you obviously are politically deprived. Look you are stuck with Malema for a very long time. Besides the media badly need malema, so lets get used to coexist with this cadre.

      Oneant - 2011-11-06 11:34

      @nbf : and you are probably ethically and morally deprived.

      Yar - 2011-11-06 13:20

      @Not BF Yes, I am politically deprived. I have had my political rights stolen by a collection of thieves. They have stolen my tax money. Viva the free press. Viva freedom of expression. Viva the hawks. Viva the department of Justice Viva the Dept of correctional services. I look forward this cadre (by definition he would be too young, a picannin during the struggle) living in a designer cell for many years. By the time he comes out the DA would have been in power for many years.

    The new song is developing - Leeeeuwkop ,Leeeeeeuwkop , is waiting for you.

  • Daaivark - 2011-11-06 11:03

    Give those Hawks a case of Bells.

  • pws69 - 2011-11-06 11:08

    Ok, I have to ask, who here commenting has EVER walked around with R2 MILLION in cash? Briefly detained? I'm guessing this is the same as the Sheriff of the court who refused to act on a JUDGES orders to attach ANCYL assets. The ANCYL rule the country. Juju: " Hey Zuma, come here and lick my boots, NOW" Zuma: " Yes sir, would you prefer me to lick right to left, or left to right?"

      Yar - 2011-11-06 13:28

      Not even Selebi. He couldn't do better that the R50K tip that Agliotti gave him.

      pws69 - 2011-11-06 16:28

      @Phillipbad, well, I would agree with you, but for the fact that we have had RICA and FICA shoved down our throats, to the extent that we have to explain how an additional R10,000 might have hit our accounts. So, it stands to reason that someone walking around with more than ten years worth of his salary (before tax) would require more than a cursory investigation. Unless RICA and FICA only applies to us plebs.

  • J.D. - 2011-11-06 11:09

    And so you call this idiot VIP. PLEASE NEWS 24!!!

  • Kevin - 2011-11-06 11:10

    Wrong heading as the ancyl has no VIP's. They have middle aged greying useless good for nothings .

  • Karen - 2011-11-06 11:24

    Briefly held in SEPTEMBER?? Still no arrest - hmm, this whole thing is a political battle between Zuma and Juju/YL and Zuma's got the Hawks on his side, will be interesting to see who wins this battle, for Zuma it's a battle to death as he is trying to survive for another term - this is better than a soapy and I cannot wait for the next installment!

      Kevin - 2011-11-06 17:30

  • Shoe - 2011-11-06 18:29

    Only two words I have for the ANC and the ANCYL: Disgusting RiffRaff!

  • Robi - 2011-11-06 21:03

    Based on posted comments,it is clear that most of the comments are against ANC government and ANC politicians.There is also indications that racial discrimination in S.A. is very strong.Sometimes I do understand frustrations among the minority based on Malema 's statements about them.Is that justifies insults to every black person in S.A. I know sometimes memories recall good things about the past. TO most of black people in SA, the past before 1994 never recalled as good, no matter how good people can think. Some think that S.A. can be compared with a banana.Do you know the shape of banana? This country as long as there are patriotic white people, indians ,coloured and blacks will always be South Africa. Change attitudes and create positive atmosphere for everyone. I hope your children not reading these comments, if it is so, your destroying them than to assist them to build better future for them and everyone. The fact is that you can be what ever you are, it is no longer there written as a policy to be pursue by the S.A. I hope in the near future the state adopt the the policy of intolerent against racial discrimination,and declaring it the criminal offence with a jail term of more than 20 years. just imagine how many criminals to be arrested for that offence.

      Servaas - 2011-11-06 21:19

      @Robi: "I hope in the near future the state adopt the the policy of intolerent against racial discrimination,and declaring it the criminal offence with a jail term of more than 20 years." At least we will be rid of Malema and half of the ANC in parliament. My dear friend as long as there is a thing such as AA/BEE EE (BS to say the least) I will think NOTHING and they WILL NOT get respect from me if an individual landed a job thanks to AA or a person with a flourishing business due to BEE. I think nothing of them and have actually lost count of the amount of AA cv's I chucked in the dustbin for job opportunity within my company to work abroad (Yes, Karma is a B*TCH ANC and AA/BEE BS does not work abroad and there is NOTHING you can do about it) and before you label me racist, I am not.. I just gave the jobs to Zimbabweans, they get the job done, highly qualified and the best part is they work for an increase instead of dancing for one!! How you like them apples?

      Maduvha - 2011-11-07 10:15

      Its only Africans like Robi who will talk about tolarance and also Servaas. Look, you can't all be Mandelas, for what, until today white haven't and won't accept him. Only when thay want to make a point that will make an african person do as they want then they will start talking about Mandela. If a kid at Pre- School can be tought to call an African a K word from home it speaks volume. My child must start now from Pre- Shool level to understand this country histroy.

  • Patsy - 2011-11-07 09:21

    Seems to me that the hawks have lost their beaks. Too many crooks arrested then let go because, because......

  • Sammy - 2011-11-07 11:23

    it is so amazing how people hate malema or the ancyl members. South Africans are full of hatred ant that drives our nation far apart instead of reconciling it. Just let the hawks do their job and stop telling them how to do it, if there is anything wrong malema of lebogo did they will deal with it to the best iof their ability. whoever feels that South Africa is not a good country for him/her then pack your staff and leave us in peace because we are committed to building one nation.

  • Sammy - 2011-11-07 11:30

    News24 thanks a lot for timeous updates you guys are reliable and you keep my days going. Keep up the good work guys.

  • Matsoso - 2011-11-09 18:55

    Hiding behind the statement that they are fighting for the poor meanwhile they are enriching themselves. I know for sure that most of the people who happen to be 'poor' have never had an opportunity to go school and so they can't see the broader picture of these people claiming to fight this poverty. It may be OK for those enriching themselves in that way, but gents you must be worned that Hawks are proferssionals in their field and you are their everyday subjects. Word of advise: there is no advise but just keep running even though your days are numbered. The old legend is inverted as: you used to run like achilles but now you are like tortose and the hawks are running at an exponential speed. Surely you must be wet in you pents.

  • Matsoso - 2011-11-09 19:10

    i wonder what'll happen tomorrow when you hear your verdict. if i could tell you the opposite and look at you chanting and singing more songs of struggle and then be the first to look at you tomorrow when you face the real music of demogracy.
