MP’s R500K theft probe

ANC MP refused to repay the businessperson and disappeared without trace, allegedly keeping the huge donation for herself.


ANC MP Bernice Swarts is under investigation for allegedly swindling a businessperson of R500 000 under the pretext that it was going to be donated to the ANC for its 2014 general elections campaign.

ANC MP refused to repay the businessperson and disappeared without trace, allegedly keeping the huge donation for herself.

Swarts, according to information that became publicly known about the CR17 campaign, allegedly received R16 million from an account linked to the campaign to mobilise support in Mpumalanga province.

He said when he contacted Swarts on March 16 2017, she sent him a vulgar text, which City Press has seen: “Jou ma se groot g&%!!t, f#$%n n$#!!r (Your mother’s big a#4!!s, f$%!! a***e). You must go get bored somewhere else whoever you are bloody motherf#@!!r.”

Swarts did not respond to questions sent to her parliamentary email address and WhatsApp, or voice messages.

“Bernice has been on the run for all these years. I believe it was not only from me, but also from other people she swindled. I had no idea where she was. I literally hunted her down. I recall even driving to Mpumalanga to look for her, getting to a point of hiring bouncers and debt collectors,” Mulaudzi said.

Majodina said that she was seeking legal advice about Mulaudzi’s complaint, which she started investigating towards the end of September this year.

“I did verify facts from both Mr Mulaudzi and Cde Swarts and my findings are that no money was received by the ANC from Mr Mulaudzi. All the transfers Mr Mulaudzi conducted went directly to Cde Swarts’ bank account. I’m still handling the matter further in terms of [Swarts] as an ANC MP notwithstanding that these money transactions occurred between 2013/14, long before [she] became an MP which was only in May this year after elections. I’m seeking legal advice on the matter,” said Majodina.

In that message Majodina recommended that the matter be sent to the ANC’s integrity committee and the parliamentary ethics committee.
