Mapisa-Nqakula’s attempt to halt her arrest has been dismissed [SOUND]

# National Assembly Speaker Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula’s attempt to halt her imminent arrest amidst corruption allegations was dismissed by the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria. The court struck the urgent application off the roll with costs against the speaker, noting that granting such an order could open the floodgates. Mapisa-Nqakula is under investigation for alleged corruption and money laundering during her time as minister of Defence and Military Veterans. Judge Sulet Potterill ruled that the court cannot declare an arrest unlawful before it happened:
