We’ve got the latest news stories and headlines in South Africa on Saturday 30 April.

Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has recommended that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) consider pursuing charges against Tony Gupta for allegedly attempting to bribe former deputy finance minister Mcebisi Jonas.

The Presidency released the much-anticipated fourth part of the State Capture Commission’s report on Friday morning, 29 April 2022, focusing on the saga within National Treasury and Eskom.

Zondo has ripped into former mineral resources minister Mosebenzi Zwane, singling him out for failing to execute his duties in office – and even questioning why former president Jacob Zuma favoured him, despite his obvious shortcomings.

Meanwhile, South Africans have weighed in on Advocate Malesela Teffo’s and many feel that the Senzo Myiwa trial is like a never-ending movie. 

Teffo represents four of the five accused of the murder of Senzo Meyiwa. He was arrested inside the Pretoria High Court on Thursday afternoon.

In some crime news, the Mpumalanga police arrested 11 suspects for allegedly stealing chrome worth approximately R5 million from trains.

The police in the Free State are looking for the relatives of a man that was allegedly murdered in 2020. He was believed to be in his thirties and was found behind the Phakisa Hostel in Welkom by passersby.
