NFP welcomes arrest of Mkhathini

2011-09-15 20:07
Durban - The National Freedom Party (NFP) has welcomed the arrest of its former Limpopo provincial leader, Mulalo Mkhathini.

Spokesperson Zanele Cele said on Thursday: "On learning that she was being investigated by the Hawks for alleged money laundering and for running a pyramid scheme, the NFP immediately suspended her."

Mkhathini rose to prominence when she promised to donate millions to the NFP when it was formed early this year.

It was reported later that she had been using the party’s name and that of its president Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi in her money-lending business.

Cele said Makhathini resigned from the NFP after the party suspended her.

"The NFP would like to put it on record that it never benefited from... unlawful business activities; suffice to say that she promised to donate R5m to the party when it was formed," said Cele.
