Johannesburg - Allegations that former police and National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Makhosini Nkosi was running a brothel at his Randburg property would be investigated, Gauteng police said on Monday.

"We have assigned detectives to investigate the allegations," Brigadier Neville Malila said.

The Sunday Times reported on Sunday that Nkosi was running a brothel but he refuted the allegations.

He said the venue was a lodge. He said he would be shutting down the business following the report.

"The firm will be shutting down as it can longer function after the publication of these false allegations," Nkosi said in a statement.

He was not aware of any criminal activity at the Randburg property.

"There are no illegal activities taking place on the premises that have been brought to my attention. On the premises there are masseuses who offer deep-tissue massage, Swedish massage, and sensual massage."

He said the masseuses and guests paid R200 an hour to use the lodge's facilities.

"Masseuses who work from the premises are independent, adult businesswomen," he said.
