High Court postpones corruption case against Magashule

Bloemfontein High Court has again postponed suspended African National Congress (ANC) secretary-general Ace Magashule’s corruption case to 19 October.

Debate ensued between the State and the defence over the status of a key witness in the multi-million-rand asbestos corruption case.

Magashule’s lawyer, Advocate Laurance Hodes, dismissed a claim that Moroadi Cholota had turned the State witness. Cholota was Magashule’s personal assistant when he was the Free State premier.

Magashule and 10 other accused are facing more than 70 charges of money laundering, theft, and corruption relating to a R250 million failed asbestos project.

All accused are expected to return to court on 19 October
