Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Zweli Mkhize is seeking legal advice, after being linked to an illicit payment for allegedly helping an oil company secure a loan from the Public Investment Corporation (PIC).
The Sunday Times reported on the weekend that a Johannesburg law firm has named Mkhize in a legal claim against a company called Afric Oil.
According to the report, Mkhize was involved in a R4.5 million deal to help to clinch the loan.
Mkhize denies receiving a R4.5 million kickback for facilitating the loan.
