Phahlane allegedly paid building contractors R700 000 cash from boot of his car

New evidence has emerged in court papers filed by Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) in the case involving acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane.

It's alleged that Phahlane paid various building contractors working on his house large sums of cash adding up to R700 000 out of the boot of his car.

R700 000 was paid over to electricians, tilers and plumbers out of the boot of his car in plastic packets in tens of thousands of rands.

What Ipid is saying is that these are dubious financial transactions and valid grounds to be investigating the matter.
