Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula’s interdict to be heard today

# National Assembly speaker Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula’s application to interdict her arrest will be heard in the Pretoria High Court today. She is accused of accepting bribes worth millions from a military contractor while she was Defence and Military Veterans minister. In her interdict application, Mapisa-Nqakula demands the full disclosure of the case against her including the charges, notes from the investigators, and the complete investigation file. The National Prosecuting Authority’s Investigating Directorate will oppose the application, saying it is baseless and has no merit.
