Tender boss paid Malema R1.2m - report

2011-08-13 23:41
Johannesburg - ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was paid R1.2m, through a Johannesburg architect building his home, by businessman Steve Bosch, the Sunday Times reported.

Records have shown that Bosch's company, Sizani Build It, made two payments from its Standard Bank account on Malema's behalf, to an Investec bank account - belonging to architect Aurielo Cimato, the report indicated.

The report indicated that Bosch had scored tenders worth tens of millions of rands in Limpopo, and Cimato is building Malema's multimillion-rand house in Sandton.

An amount of R900 000 was deposited on March 4 this year, and another R300 000 on June 4, with "J Malema" as a beneficiary reference.

The bank sent confirmations to Malema via SMS, it was reported, but Malema has denied receiving any benefit from Bosch.

"There is no money that came from me or any of my entities," he told the Sunday Times when contacted.

He then referred all questions to Bosch, adding: "I don't care whether he answers you or not, it’s none of my f**king business!"

Bosch has refused to explain the payments to the newspaper, and denied that any SMS confirmations were sent to Malema.

"Do you know how many Malema's are here in Polokwane and Botswana?" he said.
