SIU freezes luxury properties linked to musician Arthur Mafokate, former lotteries boss and others

SIU freezes luxury properties linked to musician Arthur Mafokate, former lotteries boss and others. Five NPOs received funding of R56 million from NLC.

One of the organisations, South African Art and Development Association is linked to Kwaito legend Arthur Mafokate, and applied for grant funding to assist unemployed youth in the poor and rural areas.



The properties include Mafokate's luxury property in Midrand, as well as a Cape Town property belonging to former National Lotteries Commission legal representative Lesley Ramulifho.

Former Lotto boss Alfred Nevhutanda's plot in Pretoria, former NLC board member William Huma's farm in Rustenburg and NLC legal division head Tsietsi Maselwa's luxury property in Pretoria.

"The SIU investigations revealed that the acquisition of the preserved properties was funded by the NPOs with money they had received, under the auspices of grant funding, from the NLC,” says SIU spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago.

"The properties, therefore, constitute proceeds of unlawful activities hence the application for a preservation order pending the final determination of the application for final forfeiture."

Last year the SIU also obtained a preservation order for properties linked to renowned actress Terry Pheto and former national lotteries executives.

According to the SIU, five nonprofit organisations got funds for community development initiatives totaling about R56 million. One of the groups, the South African Art and Development Association, has ties to the legendary Kwaito musician Arthur Mafokate.
