In for a Zweli, in for a pound

Questions keep rolling in over a succession of dodgy loans involving former KZN premier and his wife.

FORMER KZN premier Dr Zweli Mkhize signed a lucrative lease agreement with a KZN businessman who had given Mkhize’s wife Dr May Mashego two R1-million interest-free loans.

Evidence leaked to Noseweek shows how businessman and property developer Protus Sokhela secured a three-year R10.9m property lease with the provincial Treasury (when Zweli Mkhize was KZN MEC for finance)after having made two payments of exactly R1m each to a company of which his wife May is the sole director. Mkhize became KZN ANC chairperson in mid-2008, around the time the deal was being concluded, and became the province’s premier in 2009.
