Arthur Mafokate’s properties seized over corruption scandal
Arthur Mafakote had been linked to a corruption scandal by the Special Investigation Unit (SIU). The Special Investigating Unit has obtained a preservation order from the High Court in Pretoria to freeze three luxury properties linked to fraud at the National Lotteries Commission.
The SIU says five non-profit organizations received funding of approximately R56 million for community development projects.
One of the organizations, South African Art and Development Association is linked to Kwaito legend Arthur Mafokate, and applied for grant funding to assist unemployed youth in poor and rural areas.
The properties include Mafokate’s luxury property in Midrand, as well as a Cape Town property belonging to former National Lotteries Commission legal representative Lesley Ramulifho.
