Msimanga ‘welcomes’ probe into brother’s alleged thievery


DURBAN, April 12 – The Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng premier candidate and former Tshwane mayor, Solly Msimanga, said on Friday night that he welcomed a police investigation into allegations of theft committed by his brother.

“It has come to my attention that a case of theft has been opened with the SAPS against my brother Nkululeko Msimanga, this by the City of Tshwane. I have been informed that an investigation is ongoing and I welcome this probe,” said Msimanga in an emailed statement.

On Friday, the ANC in the city of Tshwane caucus said it had learned that Nkululeko was allegedly caught on camera stealing computers from the Tshwane municipal offices.

Continued Msimanga in his statement: “It is critical that law enforcement gets to the bottom of this matter and if my brother is guilty of any wrongdoing he should bear the consequences of his actions without fear or favour.

“The DA has been at the forefront of fighting crime and corruption where we govern and holding the ANC to account where we are in opposition. This is something we are committed to even when it is not expedient or easy to do.

“That is why I welcome this investigation and hope that the SAPS moves with speed to establish the facts and affect the necessary prosecution,” said Msimanga. (ANA)
