Fresh documents have been released to the press detailing illicit transaction between slain business man and Mbalula. the court papers published the full set of court papers that detail an alleged payment of R1m made by a murdered businessman to Police Minister Fikile Mbalula.

Mbalula has strongly denied the claims made in the court documents, and on Monday accused the media of using “dirty tricks” to besmirch his name.

The alleged payment from Wandile Bozwana, a North West tender baron who was gunned down in an apparent hit in 2015, was made to Mbalula through Thabo “Tbo Touch” Molefe, according to the court papers.

Mbalula, who was Minister of Sport at the time, and Molefe embarked on a controversial trip to Las Vegas to attend a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao shortly after Bozwana allegedly channeled the R1m to Mbalula
