Hawks investigate Mashatile’s son-in-law’s Cape Town property purchase

# Hawks spokesperson Thandi Mbambo has confirmed an investigation into the source of funds used by deputy president Paul Mashatile’s son-in-law, Nceba Nonkwelo, to purchase a 28.9-million-rand house in Cape Town’s Constantia suburb last year. This follows criminal charges filed by various opposition leaders, including John Steenhuisen. The investigation is part of allegations against Mashatile and his family’s use of luxury properties belonging to state capture-accused businessman Edwin Sodi in Clifton, and a home in Fresnaye owned by Ndavhe Mareda, who had contracts with state entities between 2016 and 2022.
