  • Former Nelson Mandela Bay ANC regional secretary Zandisile Qupe’s R3 million Gqeberha home has been attached by the National Prosecuting

The house will be sold and the proceeds will be transferred to the National Treasury, the NPA said in a statement.

The NPA said Qupe purchased the house with cash in February 2015 for R3 million, which it believes he got from R56,4 million siphoned from the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro.

Qupe allegedly got the money from a businessman in an attempt to ensure he received lucrative tenders from the municipality.

Payments totalling just over R3 million were made to Qupe’s private bank account by businessman Fareed Fakir between September 27, 2013 and January 31, 2015, the NPA said.

Qupe and Fakir are two of 14 accused facing charges of fraud, money laundering and corruption relating to two questionable municipal projects, worth a total of R56,4 million. Qupe, Fakir and others will appear in court on January 28, 2022. —News24.
