The National Lotteries Commission board has appointed an audit firm to institute an independent investigation into allegations of the improper use of funds at the commission.
Democratic Alliance (DA) Trade and Industry shadow minister Dean MacPherson has written to Trade and Industry Minister Ebrahim Patel to take action on the allegations at the NLC.
MacPherson joins Bongani Bingwa to unpack these allegations at the NLC.
I think the GroundUp team has done an incredible job in exposing this alleged corruption at the NLC and if it wasn't for them we wouldn't have known about the alleged corruption. I have asked the minister to immediately dissolve the board for its failure to deal with allegations of corruption.— Dean MacPherson, Trade and Industry shadow minister - DA
The minister must also place the NLC under administration and ensure that officials fingered in alleged corruption are placed on suspension, he adds.
