Hawks confirm Malema corruption probe

2011-08-20 18:29

The Hawks have confirmed that they are investigating ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema for fraud and corruption.

EWN reports that this is after AfriForum opened a case against Malema last month.

AfriForum opened the corruption case against the beleaguered youth league president after it was reported that he had a trust fund used to house deposits from business people.

Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela said the organisation decided to conduct the investigation just over a week ago.“Today (Saturday) is the first time we are able to confirm that indeed we are doing a full investigation, but we are unable to give any details other than that,” he said.
