ActionSA Calls for Removal of MEC Motshidisi Koloi Amid Criminal Charges

Charges and Calls for Removal

ActionSA in the Free State has taken a firm stance, calling for the immediate removal of MEC Motshidisi Koloi from office while her criminal case unfolds.

Koloi recently found herself in a legal quagmire as she faced charges related to alleged fraud, money laundering, and contravention of the Municipal Management Act.

MEC’s Legal Battle

Koloi’s appearance before the Kroonstad Magistrates Court has brought the charges against her into the public eye.

Her legal woes stem from the purchase of a sound system for a Nelson Mandela Memorial Lecture. It is alleged that Koloi, along with Department of Human Settlements Chief Director Vusimuzi Rajuili and political advisor Serake Leeuw, used municipal funds amounting to R150,000 from the Moqhaka Municipality for an event that never transpired.

Allegations of Corruption

These allegations of corruption have garnered the attention of ActionSA, which is pushing for decisive action against corruption in the region.

Patricia Kopane, ActionSA’s provincial chairperson, emphasized the damaging impact of corruption on South Africa’s development.

She underscored the urgency of treating corruption as a top priority and adopting a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of corruption.

A Pervasive Issue

The case involving MEC Koloi serves as a stark reminder of the broader issue of corruption plaguing South Africa.

ActionSA’s call for her removal highlights the significance of addressing corruption as a major obstacle to the nation’s progress.

The organization’s demand for accountability and swift action reflects the ongoing battle against corruption within the country.
